BS2023 Shanghai, China

Call for Abstracts!

Dear colleagues,

The 18th International IBPSA Conference and Exhibition Building Simulation 2023 (BS2023) will be hosted by Tongji University & Tsinghua University in Shanghai, China, from September 4th to 6th, 2023. Our vision is: Simulation for the Low-carbon Design/Operation/City.

We are pleased to inform you that the BS2023 will be in Hybrid mode. You may participate in person or via our conference platform virtually. We come to this decision considering your utmost convenience and any possible uncertainties of the COVID policy. A face-to-face, in-depth discussion is the core of the Building Simulation Conference. If it is difficult for you to travel, please keep in mind that we will ensure the publication of your accepted work and the seamless experience of a hybrid BS2023. You may flexibly switch your registration type (in-person/virtual) before August 25, 2023.

The BS2023 continues to be open for abstracts! Gratefully, we have received many contributions from researchers and practitioners worldwide. The scientific and technical sessions will cover the entire spectrum of building simulation, still expecting research papers, project reports, and workshops. Please redirect to our website and make an impact!

    Submit Abstract    

We kindly remind you that the deadline for the abstract call is on October 29, 2022, midnight CST. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
