Favorite Pre-announcement Summer School 2021 in Almeria, Spain

For the 9th time DYNASTEE will organise a Summer School in 2021 on Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Performance Assessment. More than 190 PhD students and researchers have participated in the eight preceding Summer Schools and their enthusiastic response has made us decide to continue organising this dedicated course.  

Dates

16 – 23 June 2021

The six day course will be intermitted by a weekend. We have learned that a break is very much welcomed and a social event will be organised during the break. 

Venue

CIESOL at the University of Almeria, Spain

Fee

The participation fee will be announced on the DYNASTEE website by the end of March.

Accommodation

The organisers will announce a special booking arrangement for early registrations together with the participation fee.

What is new

Arrival in the morning of 16 June. During the afternoon of the first day a get-to-know and poster presentation is scheduled. Participants and lecturers will learn about the work and level of experience of the participants on testing and analysis. Three days will be devoted to linear regression and discrete time methods (LORD) and after the weekend three days are devoted to continuous time methods (CTSM-R). The course concept will remain the same as in previous years which means that about half of the time is devoted to lectures and the other half to performing exercises using benchmark data. Departure during the afternoon/evening of Wednesday 23 June.

Feel free to contact mjose.jimenez@psa.es or hans.bloem@inive.org to be placed on the mail-list and you will receive updates of the announcement.

Favorite Symposium Conclusion

DYNASTEE took the initiative to organise a symposium, following the 6th Expert meeting of IEA EBC Annex 71 at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao. The aim of the symposium was to discuss the future role of the building stock in a changing society facing the climate challenges for companies, governments, researchers and most importantly, the citizen. Seven international renowned experts were invited to present their view on the energy transition and the development of an energy infrastructure integrating information and communication technologies and renewable energies in the building stock. The result of the successful symposium, is an article in the REHVA Journal issue 3, 2019, p. 70-74 that you can find here.

Favorite Summer School 2019 | Dynamic Methods for whole Building Energy Assessment | 9 – 20 SEPTEMBER 2019, Granada, Spain

After 7 very successful editions of the Summer School on “Dynamic methods for whole building energy assessment” the organisers have decided to offer, in collaboration with the University of Granada, a two-weeks doctoral course that focuses more on pragmatic application of dynamic calculation techniques, meaning that the analysis of building energy data is of high importance and can give potentially high value information to utility and end-user. The focus will be on increased complexity, presenting different approaches and application to benchmark data. Read the full text of the Announcement, the Introduction to the summer school as well as more information about the lectures.

The cost for the two-weeks Summer School is 475 Euro. In case that the participant decides to follow the course for one week, either Level 1 or Level 2, the cost is 290 Euro. Participants should do a pre-registration by sending a notification to Marta Ruiz, e-mail: mruiz.serviciosexternos@psa.es

Deadline for submission is July 25th 2019

Upon pre-registration further information will be sent about accommodation and participation fee payment procedure.
