Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has been the core of ASHRAE’S IAQ series of conferences for the past 30 years. This conference will expand from Indoor Air Quality to Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). IEQ includes air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics, and illumination and their interactions. The particular focus of this conference is on performance approaches including the metrics, systems, sensors and norms necessary to implement them.

Conference topics

Health and Well-being: Appropriate technical and operational definitions
Performance Metrics: For all aspects of IEQ
Interactions: Interactions between IEQ parameters
Occupant Behavior: How behavior impacts IEQ and how IEQ impacts behavior - psychological dimensions of IEQ
Smart Sensors and Big Data: Sensor properties, data management, cybersecurity, applications
Smart Controls: Equipment properties, commissioning, equivalence
Resilience and IEQ: Responding to climate change and disasters
Ventilation: Mechanical, passive, natural and hybrid systems
Air Tightness: Trends, methods and impacts
Thermal Comfort: Dynamic approaches, health impacts and trends
Policy and Standards: Trends, impacts, implications
Authors have the option to submit either a conference paper or an extended abstract and to state their preference for either an oral or poster presentation. Authors are invited to submit a 300-word or less abstract on a conference topic by December 9, 2019.

Decisions on abstracts will be made by January 8, 2020. Authors of accepted abstracts will have until February 17, 2020 to submit their conference paper or extended abstract. A template will be provided for the paper and extended abstract. Peer review of the papers will be conducted by the Scientific Committee.
