Building Enclosure Submissions Due by June 15
The National Institute of Building Sciences Building Enclosure Technology and Environment Council (BETEC) and the Building Enclosure Council – Philadelphia are seeking abstracts for papers for presentation at the fifth BEST Conference Building Enclosure Science and Technology™ (BEST5), to be held April 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The BEST5 Technical Committee will select approximately 60 abstracts related to building science research, design or practice for conference papers and presentations, panel presentations and poster presentations. Presenters have until June 15, 2017, to submit an abstract.
Topics to be considered include:
During the three-day Conference, researchers and practitioners will share knowledge and lessons learned concerning the science and art of the building enclosure. BEST5 will consist of concurrent technical sessions, plenary addresses, a BECx workshop and special programs highlighting Philadelphia’s building technology heritage. The Conference also will feature an exhibit hall with opportunities for one-on-one discussions with industry vendors of state-of-the-art building industry products and services.
The BEST5 technical program will feature both technical conference papers and “presentation only” submissions. The “presentation only” sessions do require an abstract to be submitted and professionally reviewed.
Technical papers and abstracts will be published on the Building Research Information Knowledgebase (BRIK) portal and considered for publication in the Journal of the National Institute of Building Sciences (JNIBS) or the Journal of Building Physics.
