ATLANTA (March 19, 2024)Abstract submissions are now being accepted for the 2025 ASHRAE Winter Conference to be held in Orlando, Florida, February 8-12, 2025, at the Hilton Orlando.

“Several novel technologies are emerging to improve building energy efficiency that can directly impact heating and cooling loads and indoor environmental quality,” said conference technical chair Som Shrestha. “The adoption of artificial intelligence coupled with advanced controls can also influence the thermal management of buildings. This is an exciting time for ASHRAE members to be able to accelerate the new technology developments that can make our buildings more affordable, energy efficient, and resilient. The program tracks for the upcoming winter conference explore the challenges and opportunities associated with emerging technologies and their impact on decarbonization initiatives while continuing to focus on core HVACR fundamentals and equipment research and development.”

Conference papers are requested for the following tracks:

The “Energy Storage and Grid Resiliency” track focuses on advances in cost-effective thermal energy storage materials and systems, integration of thermal energy storage in building envelopes or HVAC systems, and grid resiliency.

The “Artificial Intelligence, Building Automation, and Controls” track focuses on applications for AI and machine learning technology in building automation and controls to enhance energy efficiency and comfort, cyber security, fault detection, and more.

The “Pathways to Building Decarbonization” track highlights methods, advancements in technology and policies across the globe being developed to reduce carbon impacts on the global environment. 

The “Future-Proofing the Built Environment” track highlights innovative technologies and strategies across the globe that reimagine our relationship with the built environment now and into the future, including design strategies for extreme climates and weather, appropriate responses to energy supply disruptions, and how these factors are tied to resilience and energy conservation efforts.

 The “Ventilation and Indoor Environmental Quality” track covers topics of ventilation, air distribution systems, and all indoor environmental quality aspects, including noise, vibration, and lighting in residential and commercial buildings.

The “Industrialized Construction: Opportunities and Challenges” track explores advancements in building construction practices and workforce development, as well as opportunities and challenges associated with conventional and industrialized construction.

 The “Refrigerants and Refrigeration” track explores refrigeration systems, which generate and use cold for a range of processes, from food preparation and conservation to vaccine preservation, to long-term protection of fragile ancient inks of historical documents and others.

The "Fundamentals and Applications" track provides opportunities for papers of varying levels across a large topic base. Concepts, design elements and shared experiences for theoretical and applied concepts of HVAC&R design are included.

The "HVAC&R Systems and Equipment" track focuses on the development of new systems and equipment, improvements to existing systems and equipment and the proper application and operation of systems and equipment.

Abstracts (400 words or less) are due May 29, 2024. If accepted, final conference papers (8-page maximum) are due September 4, 2024. In addition, technical papers (complete 30-page maximum papers) are also due May 29, 2024. All accepted papers will be considered for publication in Science and Technology for the Built Environment, ASHRAE’s research journal.
