BS2021 – Building Simulation Conference in Bruges, Belgium

The Building Simulation 2021 Conference will take place as on hybrid physical-online event in Bruges, Belgium on September 1-3, 2021.

This is the place where we want to build a sustainable bridge between researchers and practitioners active in improved performance in the built environment. On the first day, named Impact Day – BS2021 expect the participation of many stakeholders, among them researchers, architects, engineers, practitioners, and policymakers. It will be a true fusion of research and practice, where inspiration, motivation, and drive will help us solve the key challenge we face today – the energy transition. Heat pumping technologies have an important role to play in this transition, especially in the building sector. Registration for this one day only.

A team from KU Leuven, Ghent University, Boyden’s engineering part of Sweco, Daidalos Peutz and IBPSA-NVL organizes, this conference under the umbrella of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA), the Building Simulation 2021 Conference in Bruges, Belgium. IBPSA as an association deals with qualitatively predicting performances (e.g. energy use, comfort, noise, indoor air quality, environmental impact, financial costs, etc) of machines, processes, concepts, human activities, etc in the built environment. It is a community (over 4000 members) of academics, Ph.D. students, engineers, and a growing share of practitioners in the sector, with affiliates in 30 countries worldwide. This is their biannual global conference that will take place in Bruges (Belgium) in September 2021. A dynamic team from practice and science, chaired by professor Lieve Helsen (KU Leuven) and prof. Wim Boydens (Boydens engineering & UGent), will shape this event.
