USA: Abstracts are now being accepted for the 2022 ASHRAE Annual Conference in Canada, which will address the changes to buildings created by the coronavirus pandemic.
The conference’s technical programme will comprise papers and programmes that are pertinent to the future of the built environment.
“As we move into 2022 and face climate extremes and natural disasters along with the pandemic, buildings continue to be critical to our everyday lives,” said Kristen Cetin, conference chair. “These commercial, industrial and residential buildings in particular face an increasingly complex set of competing priorities to balance, as well as an increasing number of technologies and solutions to use and implement. The 2022 ASHRAE Annual Conference focuses on such diverse priorities and methods to address them, while considering the dynamic nature of such priorities over time.”
