- Event type: Conference
The 40th AIVC Conference “From Energy crisis to sustainable indoor climate – 40 years of AIVC" will be held on 15 and 16 October 2019 at ‘Het Pand’, the congress centre of Ghent University in Ghent, Belgium. It will also be the 8th TightVent conference and the 6th venticool conference.
Conference Scope & Concept
In the past 40 years, since the first oil crisis in the seventies, energy and climate goals have been shaping many countries´ policy and legislative agendas. The building sector plays a crucial role in achieving these goals, considering the energy use attributed to buildings and its huge potential for improved energy performance.
Whereas in the past most of the focus was on reducing the energy consumption, it is now clear that better performing buildings must ensure an acceptable Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), by providing higher Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and comfort levels for their occupants. Building ventilation entails both challenges and opportunities to achieve this goal.
In 2019 the AIVC completes its 40th year of existence and the conference organisers thought that it would be good to pay a particular interest to the evolution during these 40 years.
This is the context defining the core theme of the joint 40th AIVC, 8th TightVent and 6th venticool Conference as: “From Energy crisis to sustainable indoor climate – 40 years of AIVC".
The conference will consist of 3 parallel sessions largely devoted to:
1. Smart ventilation, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and health relationships
3. Ventilative cooling – Resilient cooling
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.
