IAQ 2020

Indoor Environmental Quality Performance Approaches

Transitioning from IAQ to IEQ


The conference organized by ASHRAE and AIVC will take place September 14-16. 2020 in Athens, Greece. The conference will also be the 9th TightVent and 7th venticool conference. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has been the core of ASHRAE’S IAQ series of conferences for the past 30 years. This conference will expand from Indoor Air Quality to Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). IEQ includes air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics, and illumination and their interactions. The particular focus of this conference is on performance approaches including the metrics, systems, sensors and norms necessary to implement them.

  • Smart Controls: Equipment properties, commissioning, equivalence
  • Resilience and IEQ: Responding to climate change and disasters
  • Ventilation: Mechanical, passive, natural and hybrid systems
  • Air Tightness: Trends, methods and impacts
  • Thermal Comfort: Dynamic approaches, health impacts and trends
  • Policy and Standards: Trends, impacts, implications

CALL FOR PAPERS

Authors have the option to submit either a conference paper or an extended abstract and to state their preference for either an oral or poster presentation. Authors are invited to submit a 300-word or less abstract on a conference topic by December 9, 2019.

Decisions on abstracts will be made by February 12, 2020. Authors of accepted abstracts will have until April 17, 2020 to submit their conference paper or extended abstract. A template will be provided for the paper and extended abstract. Peer review of the papers will be conducted by the Scientific Committee.
