The objective of the 2015 Building Simulation Conference (BS-2015) is to advance the practice in diverse disciplines of building energy analysis and performance simulation. BS-2015 is for those working in or learning about the field of building performance simulation including building designers, architects, sustainability managers, researchers and developers (http://www.bs2015.in/) .
Augenbroe has a 35-year track record of teaching and research of modeling and simulation of buildings at various scales. He is internationally recognized in promoting professional use of building simulation and has served on the board of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA). In the nineties he coordinated four major EU-funded consortia of academic and industrial partners in the fields of design tool interoperability (COMBINE, 1990-1995), energy performance simulation, outsourcing and project planning (e-HUBS, 2002-2005).
Augenbroe has been main advisor of 30+ PhD graduates in Europe and the USA. He teaches graduate courses and conducts research in the fields of building performance concepts, computational building simulation, indoor air quality, intelligent building systems, uncertainty and risk, system monitoring and diagnostics. He serves on the scientific board of five international journals and has published over 200 refereed papers and three books.
Augenbroe has given many keynote lectures and has obtained major research grants in Europe and the US. Most recently he received the NSF EFRI-SEED award “Risk conscious design and retrofit of buildings for low energy”, $2.0 Million, 2010-2014.
