The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers is looking for practitioners and designers to present at its new Building Performance Analysis Conference.  

The society is also looking for teams to compete in its annual LowDown Showdown modeling competition.

The 2017 modeling competition now allows conference attendees to form their own teams to retrofit an existing building.

“The conference engages the design aspect of modeling and simulation,” said Dennis Knight, conference chairman. “Our goal is to serve practitioners with the most up-to-date best practices, work flows and processes required to plan, design, construct and operate high-performing, low energy-consuming, environmentally responsive and responsible, safe, secure and healthy buildings for human occupancy.”

The conference takes place Sept. 27-29 in Atlanta. To submit a presentation proposal or to sign up for the modeling competition, visit
