Conference Agenda

Session Overview
Location: Concert Hall - Artiestenfoyer
't Zand 34, Bruges
Date: Wednesday, 01/Sept/2021
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, Ghent University

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.
