ASHRAE Issues Call for Papers for IEQ 2025 
Submission deadline is November 11, 2024

ATLANTA (May 30, 2024) – ASHRAE is accepting papers for the IEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality) 2025 Conference, co-organized by ASHRAE and AIVC, to be held September 24-26, 2025, in Montreal, Canada.

The conference expands upon the research and discussions of the former ASHRAE IAQ conference series that began in 1986. The theme of the conference is “Rising to New Challenges: Connecting IEQ to a Sustainable Future” and focuses on the increasing understanding of how occupants respond to various indoor environmental factors while enhancing resilience in the face of a changing climate.

"Incorporating sustainability into building design and operation is a key goal for ASHRAE and the broader buildings community,” said Iain Walker, conference co-chair. “This conference will focus on the relationships between IEQ and sustainability, offering a platform for industry leading researchers and practitioners to share their knowledge and solutions for address sustainability challenges."    

“One aspect of IEQ in the built environment is to raise awareness of resilience without incurring resource penalties in our dynamic world,” said Jennifer Isenbeck, co-chair. “This conference will provide a collaborative framework to showcase advanced technologies, materials selection and their integration into building designs and retrofits, all of which support sustainability and resilience in our communities.”

The conference steering committee seeks papers on the following topics:

  • Performance Metrics: For all aspects of IEQ
  • Occupant Behavior: How behavior impacts IEQ and how IEQ impacts behavior - psychological dimensions of IEQ
  • Smart Sensors, Data and Controls: Sensor properties, data management, cybersecurity, applications, commissioning, equivalence
  • Resilience and IEQ: Responding to climate change and disasters
  • Ventilation: Mechanical, passive, natural and hybrid systems
  • Air Tightness: Trends, methods and impacts
  • Thermal Comfort: Dynamic approaches, health impacts and trends
  • Policy and Standards: Trends, impacts, implications
  • HVAC and IEQ in a post-COVID world
  • Ventilation and building decarbonization


Authors have the option to submit a short abstract for either a conference paper (8-page manuscript) or an extended abstract (3-page manuscript). Short abstract submissions are due November 11, 2024. If accepted, complete manuscript submissions are due March 10, 2025. For more information or to submit an abstract, visit
