2021 Conference Info

About

Performance Huddle is an annual symposium organized by IBPSA-Houston relating to building performance simulations. This year we are hosting 3 sessions, 9 speakers and one software workshops. The speakers are building scientists, architects, and engineers involved in building performance in practice or academia. It is geared towards students, practicing architects or engineers, as well as experts in the field and anyone interested in the science of creating high performing and comfortable built environments. 

Conference Platform

The 2021 Performance Huddle conference is a hybrid conference with both in-person and virtual components. The online component will be hosted on the Hopin platform. Hopin is a virtual venue with multiple interactive areas that are optimized for connecting and engaging. Conference attendees can move in and out of rooms/booths just like an in-person event and enjoy networking with peers.
