UCL IEDE staff participate at the Building Simulation and Optimization (BSO) 2018 conference
31 October 2018
There was great representation from IEDE members of staff and students with papers on topics ranging from building performance modelling, occupant behaviour modelling and modelling uncertainty analysis to life cycle analysis.
The International Building Performance Simulation Association England chapter (IBPSA-England) is an affiliate of IBPSA-World, a non-profit international society of building performance simulation researchers, developers and practitioners, dedicated to improving the built environment. IBPSA-England is founded to advance and promote the science of building performance simulation in order to improve the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of new and existing buildings. It was founded in 2006 as one of the regional affiliates, and has grown to have a membership of more than 500 participants. The society is run by 13 board members elected by the membership, three of whom are IEDE members of staff. Any individual with an interest in the field of building simulation can become an individual member of IBPSA-England.
The IBPSA-England biennial international conference Building Simulation and Optimization (BSO) 2018 took place on 11 and12 September at the University of Cambridge with more than 120 delegates in attednance. More than 90 technical papers and posters were presented during three parallel sessions over the two days of the very successful conference.
There was great representation from IEDE at the conference with three members of staff chairing sessions on building stock modelling, retrofit analysis and façade modelling and eight members of staff and eight PhD students presenting their research in seven oral presentations on diverse topics, ranging from building performance modelling, occupant behaviour modelling and modelling uncertainty analysis to life cycle analysis:

- Integrated building life cycle carbon and cost analysis embedding multiple optimisation levels - Stathis Eleftheriadis, Yair Schwartz, Rokia Raslan, Philippe Duffour, Dejan Mumovic
- Feedback and feedforward mechanisms for generating occupant datasets for UK school stock simulation modelling - Duncan Grassie, Ivan Korolija, Dejan Mumovic, Paul Ruyssevelt
- What are the implications of algorithm choice on the overheating risk assessment? - Giorgos Petrou, Anna Mavrogianni, Phil Symonds, Ivan Korolija, Anastasia Mylona, Rokia Raslan, Dane Virk, Mike Davies
- Utilising meta-model based optimisation to determine the effects of data granularity on model calibration - Chris van Dronkelaar, Mark Dowson, Spataru Catalina, Dejan Mumovic
- Comparative analysis of protocols used in measurement and verification of energy performance: Dealing with practical issues of data availability and granularity in a UK school building - Nishesh Jain, Esfand Burman, Dejan Mumovic, Michael Davies, Andrew Tindale
