The 40th AIVC Conference “From Energy crisis to sustainable indoor climate – 40 years of AIVC” will be held during the 15th & 16th of October, 2019 at ‘Het Pand’, the congress centre of Ghent University in Ghent, Belgium. It will be a joint event combined with the 8th TightVent and the 6th venticool conferences. The conference programme will include well‐prepared and structured sessions focused on the conference topics, invited speakers, long and short oral presentations arising from the call, as well as 90 seconds industry presentations.
Abstract submission is open at: https://www.dna.gr/aivc2019/ .
The deadline for the abstract submission is March 20, 2019.

An inexorable increase in energy consumption for the cooling of buildings, and the increase in overheating of buildings is caused by urbanisation and densification, climate change, elevated comfort expectations, and inappropriate architectural design practices. Meeting this challenge requires further development … Continue reading
