Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) and the Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) at Texas A&M University have the privilege of organizing the 10th International Conference for Enhanced Building Operations (ICEBO) scheduled for 26-28 October 2010. The conference brings together annually an international group of researchers, professionals and practitioners who routinely improve the energy efficiency, operating costs, and environmental impacts of buildings. ICEBO is a leading forum for in-depth information exchange among researchers, building operators, and professionals interested in the continuous advancements in energy efficiency applications. ESL inaugurated the annual ICEBO conferences in 2001 as a forum for the exchange of experience and ideas among those dedicated to ensuring that buildings perform optimally throughout their lives. Recent venues of ICEBO include:

The objectives of ICEBO 2010 are as follows:

  • To discuss best practices in building operations.
  • To achieve sustainable buildings, increase energy savings and improve occupant comfort.
  • To discuss best practices in shaving peak load demand.
  • To discuss on-site renewable energy applications and their related policies to promote them in the region.
  • To provide a forum for scientists and experts to exchange views and experiences to enhance building operations in the region. 
  • To bring together decision makers and professionals who are involved in carrying out, managing and funding research to exchange experience and establish cooperative relationships.
