ASHRAE is seeking authors to submit papers for an HVAC conference covering marine issues.

Scheduled for May 22-24 in Athens, Greece, the International Conference on Energy and Environment in Ships is sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers; the Hellenic Navy; the Technical Chamber of Greece and the society’s Hellenic Chapter.

The conference will focus on military and marine issues, and wants to hear from operators, managers and technical experts, said conference chairman Dimitris Charalambopoulos.

“This conference will be the first of its kind to draw up the strong links to the Hellenic Navy, the shipping and the engineering community,” he said. “Attendees can expect to see current practices, new approaches, methodologies, technologies and identify areas of improvement.”

Scheduled topics include indoor air quality aboard ships, HVAC, zero-energy building and filtration.

Four-hundred-word abstracts are due Oct. 13. Final papers are due Jan. 26, 2015, if accepted by the society. Details are available at www.ashrae.org/Ships2015
