The 2011 ASHRAE Winter Conference will feature papers and programs addressing the industry’s efforts to achieve zero-energy design. Roughly a quarter of the technical program will feature paper-based sessions, providing a more written record of advances in the industry. The paper-related sessions consist of Technical Papers – a full paper that undergoes a rigorous double-blind review – and Conference Papers – a shorter paper that undergoes a less-rigorous single-blind review.
The technical program features a wide-range of programs and papers
addressing the efficient use of energy, the greening of the industrial
base, the real cost of zero-energy design and other topics related to
design, standards, codes and professional skills.
