Sharpen your skills in Energy Modeling, Refrigerants or Cold Climate Design at one of ASHRAE’s three upcoming specialty conferences taking place in October and November 2012. These conferences feature peer-reviewed papers, presentations with hands-on information presented in a non-commercial format, Professional Development Hours and networking opportunities

Energy Modeling Conference, Oct. 1–3, 2012

Atlanta, Georgia
Building on the successful Energy Modeling Conference format in April 2011, this conference highlights numerous hands-on application-type presentations. Of special interest is the interactive session with modeling software developers presenting common modeling scenarios on how their specific software can model a scenario, whether there are any limitations and what might be the best work around and exceptional modeling practices to obtain acceptable results when the tool cannot model the scenario “out-of-the-box.”

ASHRAE/NIST Refrigerants Conference, Oct. 29–30, 2012

Gaithersburg, Maryland
This conference provides an opportunity for participants to learn about the latest information on alternative refrigerants, likely time schedules, transition requirements, environmental effects of refrigerants, new refrigerant performance considerations and what will be required to phase-out the use of high GWP refrigerants with alternatives and other technologies. This is the fourth jointly sponsored conference between ASHRAE and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and presents peer-reviewed papers.


Nov. 12–14, 2012

Calgary, Alberta, Canada
The principal objective of Cold Climate HVAC 2012 is to provide key elements of a strategy by which scientists, designers, engineers, manufacturers and other decision makers in cold climate regions can achieve good indoor environmental quality (IEQ), with a minimum use of resources and energy. Some 60 peer-reviewed papers presented by diverse, international authors showcase world-wide perspectives and practices in cold climate design.
