Executive Scientific Committee

Dear colleague,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of Building Simulation 2023, we are pleased to invite you to be a member of the Executive Scientific Committee for this conference. It is the 18th bi-annual Conference of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA), to be held in Shanghai, 4-6 September 2023.

At Building Simulation 2023, we want to bring together the interests of academics and practitioners in a stimulating technical program. We therefore focus on the application of the latest scientific developments at the frontier of the societal challenges in the built environment. The conference covers different topics related to building performance simulations organized in the following topics within 5 themes:

Simulating future metropolis

Regulations/codes for carbon neutrality
Urban-scale simulation
District energy system
Demand response & interactive grid
Urban renaissance & cultural heritage

Performance-driven design

Parametric/Automatic design
Active/Passive/Zero-carbon buildings
Weather & climate adaptation
Building physics
CFD & airflow

Smart building systems

Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning
Commissioning, diagnostics & control
Validation, calibration & uncertainty
Simulation vs. reality

Modeling for the digital world

Big data & machine learning
BIM & interoperability
Advanced modeling techniques
New software development

Human-centered simulation/design

Occupant behavior
Thermal comfort
Indoor environmental quality
Healthy buildings

The main role of the Executive Scientific Committee members is:

  • To help coordinate the review process, each member will be kindly invited to supervise the review process of 15~20 manuscripts. This includes monitoring the quality of the reviews, sending reminders if necessary (the conference secretariat will assist), detecting conflicting reviews and communicating major issues to Scientific Chairs.
  • To assist in the choice of additional reviewers when needed. The main assignment of the papers to reviewers will be taken care of by the conference secretariat, but sometimes additional reviewers may be required.
  • An honorary membership, with a representative and promotional function.
  • To help with the review process as a reviewer in case you have not signed up as a reviewer.

When you accept our invitation, we will send you the necessary practical details, in order to assure the smooth execution of these tasks.

The members of the BS2023 Executive Scientific Committee will be mentioned in the book of abstracts and on the conference website.

We look forward to receiving your answer to this invitation. You can contact us at or via a reply to this email.

Best regards,
Prof. Borong Lin, Prof. Jun Gao
Scientific Chairs of BS2023
