ATLANTA (July 23, 2019) – ASHRAE announced a call for papers for the Fourth International Conference on Efficient Building Design to be held Oct. 1-2, 2020, at the American University of Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon.

“Efficient building design is important to the overall performance of buildings,” says Nesreen Ghaddar, conference chair. “This conference not only offers presentations on latest findings relevant to hot humid climates in the gulf region, it will address the impact of low-energy design on occupant health in different building sectors.”

The conference is organized by ASHRAE, the ASHRAE Lebanese Chapter, the Munib and Angela Masri Institute of Energy and Natural Resources and the Department of Mechanical Engineering at American University of Beirut. It provides advanced research on the topics of building and bioclimatic designs for attaining occupant comfort and good environmental quality for addressing systems and technologies adapted to the moderate and hot humid climates.

The presentation topics include:

  • Sustainable building designs
  • Energy efficiency standards
  • Building materials
  • Indoor air quality systems
  • HVAC technologies
  • Solar heating and cooling for the built environment
  • Low and near zero energy buildings

Abstracts of 400 words are due Sept. 30. To submit an abstract or for more information on the Fourth International Conference on Efficient Building, visit
