ASHRAE will show off its technical expertise Jan. 29-31 in Dallas at the 2007 AHR Expo where 16 technical sessions will be held. Designed to share ASHRAE’s technical guidance with Expo attendees, the sessions include topics such as vibration control, energy-efficient ventilation systems, using ground-source heat pumps in schools and new BACnet capabilities.
“Offering attendees an opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in technology via the technical program complements the expo, which features those advancements being incorporated into products and equipment,” said Ginger Scoggins, chair of the program committee. “These sessions make ASHRAE’s meeting and top-rate technical program more visible while at the same time drawing more meeting attendees to the expo.”
In addition, ASHRAE will present a comprehensive technical program Jan. 28-31 at the Adam’s Mark Hotel. The six-track technical program centers on energy efficiency in buildings and includes such seminars as “Achieving a 50% Approach to Net Zero Energy Use in Buildings” and “Risk Management of Infectious Airborne Diseases.” The technical program consists of 67 seminars plus the 16 seminars at the convention center, 12 open-discussion forums, one public session, one poster session with 21 papers presented and 18 transaction sessions with a total of 48 papers presented.
Also new for this year is the technical plenary speaker, National Geographic Magazine Executive Editor Dennis Dimick. A picture editor specializing in environmental stories for more than 15 years, Dimick will address attendees of the technical program about a 2004 project he oversaw on global climate change between sessions at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 28 at the Adam’s Mark. Meeting registration is required to attend.
