ASHRAE will be showing off its technical expertise during the 2007 AHR Expo at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Jan. 29-31.
For the first time, 16 technical sessions will be held during the ASHRAE winter meeting. 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.
In addition, ASHRAE will present a comprehensive technical program at the Adam’s Mark Hotel, Jan. 28-31. The overall six-track technical program centers on energy efficiency in buildings. 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.
Serving as technical plenary speaker is National Geographic Magazine executive editor Dennis Dimick. Dimick, a picture editor specializing in environmental stories for more than 15 years, will address technical program attendees between sessions on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 9:30 a.m. at the Adam’s Mark hotel.
