Welcome to Building Simulation and Optimization BSO16
IBPSA-England is a regional affiliate organisation of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA), an international organisation that aims to advance and promote the science of building performance simulation in order to improve the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of new and existing buildings.
Building Simulation and Optimization is the core of the national conferences. It provides a forum for the exchange of knowledge on the development and application of building performance simulation to the optimum design and operation of buildings. The conference started in 2012
Previous conferences were held in:
Loughborough University 10-12 September 2012 (112 delegates Full papers 90)
University College London UCL 2014 23-24 June 2014 (178 delegates, 101 full papers)
Conference sponsors include large international building simulation software houses such as ‘Designbuilder and IESVE’ as well as the Chartered Institute for Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). We will be seeking sponsorship from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to capture on the expanding role of architects in using building performance tools as design.
