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.
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.
CIESOL at the University of Almeria, Spain
The participation fee will be announced on the DYNASTEE website by the end of March.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to be placed on the mail-list and you will receive updates of the announcement.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for submission is July 25th 2019
Upon pre-registration further information will be sent about accommodation and participation fee payment procedure.
Outcome of the 7th Summer School on “Dynamic methods for whole building energy assessment” organised by the INIVE-DYNASTEE and PSA-CIEMAT in collaboration with CIESOL (Joint Centre University of Almeria-CIEMAT dedicated to research in Solar Energy and its applications), in Almería, Spain. The focus has been more on pragmatic application of developed dynamic calculation techniques to support the analysis of building energy data that is of high importance and can give potentially high value information to utilities and end-users. The focus this time has been on increased complexity and variability, and several approaches have been applied to benchmark data.
A follow-up Summer School has been discussed which may take place in Summer 2019 again in Spain. Follow our organisational progress at the DYNASTEE web-site
A warm welcome to the participants by Josemaría Manzano Jurado, director of School of Architecture from the University of Granada (founded in 1531) and Delfina Bastos González, academic secretary of the School was followed by a tour in the beautiful renovated old building in the centre of the city.
After 5 very successful editions of the Summer School on “Dynamic methods for whole building energy assessment” this time the focus was on pragmatic application of these dynamic calculation techniques. The main purpose of this summer school was to train a methodology for evaluation of measured data. Five enthusiastic lecturers have presented methodologies in more than 10 presentations for assessing the heat transfer characteristics of building envelopes using data for hands-on exercises. During the summer course, information on relevant software has been given. For the practical exercises the software tool LORD has been applied on benchmark data as well as routines in the R-environment. More than half of the participants submitted prior to the course their homework which revealed that most of them have problems with assessing the thermal capacitance. This was the reason for a special lecture on how to deal with techniques for separating the static aspects from the dynamics. Discussed has been a more advanced course as a follow-up of this Summer School School that may take place during the summer of 2018.
For the social mid-week event, a visit to the Salobreña Castle on the Mediterranean coast was organised followed by a dinner with all participants and lecturers on the terrace of a typical Spanish taberna.

When and where?
The venue for the Summer School is for the second time in Granada, at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Granada and takes place from Monday 3 until Friday 7 July, 2017.
Detailed information about the presented topics can be found in the announcement that can be downloaded from here. The cost for the week-long Summer School is 400 Euro.
Registration for the Summer School is closed. Next Summer School will take place in June 2018.
The main purpose of this summer school is to train a methodology for evaluation of measured data. Five enthusiastic lecturers will teach methodologies in more than 10 presentations for assessing the heat transfer characteristics of building envelopes as well as whole building using data for hands-on exercises. During the summer course, information on relevant software will be given and software tools will be used in the exercises. See also www.dynastee.info. In the document Software techniques applied to thermal performance characteristics some further information about methods and tools is given as well as on benchmark data for testing these methods.
Another successful Summer School on Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Assessment has taken place from 19-24 June, 2016 in lovely and inviting Granada, Spain.
A record number of 34 participants from all over the world gathered at the Civil Engineering School, University of Granada, nearby the famous Alhambra, to get trained in methodologies for assessment of building energy performance. Participants came from Japan, China, South-Korea, Mexico, Canada, Lebanon and from 14 European countries. Most of them were PhD or post-doc students and many are involved in IEA-EBC projects.
The event was opened by Professor Montserrat Zamorano Toro, director of the Civil Engineering School of the University of Granada. Many thanks go to her Department as well as to Professor Diego Pablo Ruiz Padillo of the Applied Physics School. The introductory presentation was made by Paul Baker, invited speaker and expert on in-situ measurements and analysis. He showed the importance and practical side of carrying out experimental work on site to collect proper data for analysis…more
Twenty-five people have participated to the Summer School 2014 at KU Leuven, Heverlee in Belgium. Most of the participants were PhD students with building physics and engineering background.

For the 3rd consecutive year, DYNASTEE is organising with collaboration of universities, national research organisations and industry, a Summer School on the topic of Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Assessment.
Today, more and more data related to building and building components originate from outdoor testing under time-varying and dynamic conditions, or from real life use of buildings. The main purpose of this summer school is to train the students in a methodology for evaluation of measured data. PhD students might be interested to know that 2.5 ECTS are awarded for attendance at this Summer School and a further 2.5 ECTS for additional work on a proposed exercise or centred on the students’ own projects.
