Chair: Mathias Bouquerel
Chair : Thomas Bockelandt
Session W1.2: Student Modelling Competition: Can we build a building without HVAC and achieve good comfort in Belgium (like 2226 in Austria)?
Location: Concert Hall - Artiestenfoyer
Chair: Elisa Van Kenhove

The aim of the student modelling challenge & competition is to facilitate wider participation in the conference by providing a competitive forum for MSc and PhD students to explore the use of building performance simulation.

In this special edition of the IBPSA student challenge & competition, we have encouraged participants to use the IBPSA network to share information, ask questions and provide solutions as well as to collaborate and learn from each other. The subject of the study is the low-tech building 2226 of Baumslager & Eberle in Lustenau. Out of all participating teams, two finalists are selected that will present their work in this session.

How to learn from your peers, the highly experienced or even famous researchers?

At BS2021 we have identified some of the “top” building simulation researchers and we will put them together for a casual panel discussion trying to address all of the audience scientific and non-scientific questions (Q&A).

 You will learn something more about their career path, their ups and downs and life changing choices and moments.
