Symposium Decision support systems for sustainable buildings

18 May 2010 | 13:00 - 18 May 2010 | 18:00
location: Faculteit Bouwkunde, Berlagezaal 1
by M&C

On Tuesday 18 May 2010 the Faculty of Architecture of TU Delft and TU Eindhoven are to organize the symposium ‘Decision Support Systems for Sustainable Buildings’ at the Berlage Room at the Faculty of Architecture, TU Delft.

Attendance is free and all employees and students of both universities and other people who are interested in the topic are kindly invited.

Decision Support Systems for Sustainable Housings

Decision Support Systems for Sustainable Housings refers to the use and development of computer tools to help users, designers, engineers, managers and policy-makers to improve the sustainability aspect in buildings with regard to energy consumption, for example. The tools are designed to provide these parties with support in their decision-making processes relating to the design, re-design or management of buildings, either individually or in larger groups.

This symposium will introduce recent and current PhD research at the TU Delft and TU Eindhoven on decision support systems for sustainable buildings.

The following research groups are participating in the symposium:

  • Design Informatics (Prof. Sevil Sariyildiz) - Faculty of Architecture, TU Delft
  • Sustainable Housing Transformations (Prof. Anke van Hal) - Faculty of Architecture, TU Delft
  • Design Systems (Prof. Bauke de Vries) - Faculty of Architecture, TU Eindhoven)






Session 1

  • Michael Bittermann – ‘Evaluating and improving sustainability using computational intelligence’
  • Sonja van Dam – ‘Applying home energy management systems in households’
  • Michael Turrin - ‘Performance-oriented arhictectural geometry for large modular structures’
  • Remco Niemeijer – ‘Choose for a better world’ 



Coffee break 


Session 2

  • Erwin Mlecnik – ‘Motivation for highly energy-efficient renovation’
  • Irem Erbas – ‘Decision Support for Energy Efficient Redesign: Knowledge Modeling for improvement of indoor climate in existing housing’
  • Rona Vreenegoor - ‘Energy evaluation & optimization model at the district level’
  • Ipek Gursel – ‘Computational Support for Lifecycle Building Performance Assessment’




Attendance is free.
