 >     Call for Abstracts
 >     The 2006 IBPSA Australasia Conference will explore the roles and
challenges of building performance simulation in achieving a sustainable
built environment. The conference invites researchers, academics, and
practitioners to participate and present their work addressing the
conference theme above, with specific topics as listed below, although
not limited to:
 >     - Simulation for environmental performance assessments
 >     - Simulation for building rating schemes
 >     - Simulation for site or city planning
 >     - The issue of weather data
 >     - Natural ventilation simulation
 >     - Daylighting and lighting simulation
 >     - Thermal comfort simulation
 >     - Case studies (simulation in practice)
 >
 >     It is expected that the conference will provide useful outcomes
to government bodies, industry and practitioners, such as building
regulators and code officials in developing building codes and
standards; city planners in assessing planning development using
building performance simulation; engineers, building architects and
designers in improving the design of the built environment; and
researchers in understanding the complex issues surrounding people and
the built environment.
