Welcome to the 12th International Conference of the International Building Performance Simulation Association.

The conference will be co-hosted by IBPSA Australasia, an affiliate of the International Building Performance Simulation Association, and the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air-conditioning and Heating (AIRAH), Australia's peak body for the HVAC industry. This collaboration will provide a unique forum for exchange of ideas and information between simulation researchers, designers of applications, mechanical designers, and government legislators responsible for designing and enacting building codes which will increasingly include simulations. A strong turnout is expected from the local simulation user community as simulation is a hot topic for building design in Australia.

We look forward to seeing you here!

Driving Better Design Through Simulation

The simulation of building performance is increasingly embedded in the design process through green rating tools, regulation and as a general means of optimising design. Building Simulation 2011 will explore current best practice and new horizons for the use of simulation to drive better building design, covering issues such as:

Who Should Attend?

The conference is ideal for anyone working in or learning about the field of building performance simulation including:
