Building Simulation 2019 – academics present their state of the art research

5 September 2019

Several academics from The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources (BSEER) have presented their work at the internationally renowned International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) conference in Rome.

Rome conference

The International Building Performace Simulation Association conference is the premier international event in the field of building performance simulation. This conference is an opportunity to share information, present and get updates about new developments in this research area.

A number of staff from The Bartlett School for Environment, Energy and Resources attended and presented at this years conference.


Fellowship

Dejan Mumovic, Director of the UCL Institue for Environmental Design and Engineering, has received Fellowship of the International Building Performace Simulation for his contribution to the field. The grade of IBPSA fellow is awarded to members who have attained distinction in the field of building performance simulation (or in the allied arts or sciences), by either the teaching of major courses in said arts and sciences, or by way of research, simulation code development, original work, or the application of building simulation on projects of a significant scope. 

Dejan also chaired a session on Occupant Behaviour in Building Performance Simulation.
