GEN – 725.00. This workshop aims to identify the pros and cons of performance-based approaches and metrics that can be considered to assess the IAQ performance of ventilation systems, as well as to draft guidelines for their use in standards and regulations.
Attendees are expected to participate, either through presentation, or in active discussions during each session. Target attendees are experts, professionals, or scientists researching ventilation or IAQ issues related to existing or potentially new IAQ performance approaches, such as metrics.
Topics addressed in presentations and discussions include:
- Factors that should influence IAQ assessment
- Is CO2 indoor pollutant?
- The potential for, and limits of, CO2 based indices, humidity or moisture, health damage, perceived air quality, air mixing behaviour, and pollutant distribution within a space
- The potential for, and limits of, combined indices
- Definition and use of rating methods for smart ventilation, DCVs, natural ventilation, etc. (equivalent ventilation principle)
- Barriers to performance-based standards (showing evidence of compliance, accounting for sources, sensors and controls, time-activity patterns)
Call for speakers
Experts involved in the development of performance-based approaches for IAQ and associated metrics, are invited to submit a short description of their 20-min presentation on the workshop topics mentioned above.
The deadline for the submission is November 1, 2016. Submissions should be in accordance with the template available attached. Speakers will be notified of presentation acceptance by 1 December 2016. Registration fee is waived for speakers.
For additional information please visit the AIVC website. On this website you will find the contacts in the various countries that participate in Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre.
