We invite you to submit your original research to SimAUD 2022, held as part of ANNSIM 2022. The Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design provides an opportunity for architecture researchers and simulation researchers to come together to focus on this important area. Buildings are the largest consumers of energy, responsible for the majority of all Green House Gas emissions due to the complexity and multidisciplinary aspects of architectural design and construction. However, there are now hundreds of exemplar net-zero buildings around the world demonstrating that research should focus on how to generalize and deploy this knowledge at scale. To this end, we seek submissions, for example, that can apply net-zero systems to novel designs for retrofit recommendations or optimizations to new build designs. Examinations of aspects of the built environment, and how they impact emissions and occupancy health, are welcome. Additional topics of interest include:

  • Simulation, Data-Driven, and Generative Design for Sustainability
  • Whole Building Energy Simulation
  • Modeling of Net-zero Building Systems
  • Multidisciplinary Design Optimization
  • Modeling of Occupant Behavior
  • Thermal Comfort & Occupant Satisfaction
  • Lighting and Daylighting
  • Airflow In & Around Buildings
  • Acoustics Modeling, Simulation & Design
  • Urban-Scale Modeling & Simulation
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Intelligent Buildings & Building Lifecycle Management
  • Interactive Environments & Responsive Facades
  • Digital and Robotic Fabrication
  • Material and Structural Performance Modeling
