The Symposium on Building Science and the Physics of Building Enclosure Performance - Part 1 will be held on October 21-22, 2018 at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C.

The symposium is co-sponsored by ASTM Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings and Committee D08 on Roofing and Waterproofing, and will take place in conjunction with the October standards development meetings of Committee E06. This two-day event will be the first of two parts, the second of which taking place in December 2018. The symposium will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on current research regarding building science and the physics of building enclosure and whole building performance, with an emphasis on transitions between the horizontal and the vertical and the critical points of intersection; testing and assessment of heat, air, and moisture transfer; energy use, and the environment. Online registration is now open and closes October 17, 2018.
