ASHRAE Announces Call for Papers for Research Summit

Originally published: 07.31.12 by HVACR Business Staff


The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has announced a call for research papers for a newly created Research Summit to be held June 22-26 in conjunction with the Society’s 2013 Annual Conference in Denver, Colo. 

The presentation of research-related papers is a part of the overall Research Summit, which will also encompass keynote speakers, forums, panel discussions and seminars.  Also, other sessions of interest to the research community will be presented, including how to apply for ASHRAE research funding.  

The conference aims to bring together distinguished researchers to present and discuss the latest research results, innovative research techniques, and forecast future research directions. Individuals from government agencies also will be invited to discuss research funding opportunities.

Technical papers are sought that describe completed and ongoing research, addressing broad areas in HVAC&R research and building science, which seeks to address the broader areas outside of the HVAC&R and how buildings systems perform. Papers related to renewable energy research and its role in the industry’s movement toward a clean energy economy are highly encouraged.  

There are two types of paper submissions:

  • Conference Papers: Abstracts due Sept. 24, 2012.  Upon acceptance, papers will be due Jan. 14, 2013.  These “final”

    papers undergo a single-blind review, are submitted as a PDF and have an eight single-spaced page maximum length.
  • Full Technical Papers: Full papers are due Sept. 24, 2012.  These papers undergo a rigorous double-blind review and can be a maximum of 30 double-spaced pages.  Accepted technical papers are published in ASHRAE Transactions.  

Authors of papers published in Transactions may be invited to submit expanded papers for publication consideration in HVAC&R Research, ASHRAE’s journal for archival research. 

ASHRAE Transactions papers are cited in the Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge Index of Scientific & Technical Proceedings, Index to Scientific Books and Current Contents Proceedings: Engineering, Technology, Applied Physics.  ASHRAE Transactions papers are also cited in SciVerse Scopus and COMPENDEX. 

In addition to Research, the 2013 ASHRAE Annual Conference seeks papers addressing the core HVAC&R Systems and Equipment, and Fundamentals and Applications advances and practices, as well as for tracks on Integrated Project Delivery (IPD),  Building Energy Modeling vs. Measurement and Verification, and Mile-High Efficiency and Equipment.  

To submit a conference paper abstract or a technical paper and for more information about the 2013 ASHRAE Annual Conference, go to www.ashrae.org/Denver.
