Presentation Topics

Oral and poster presentations are solicited on all topics related to the theme of the symposium, “Greening the Built Environment,” with favorability for oral slots given to those that also address the overarching theme of the 97th Annual Meeting, “Observations Lead the Way.” The symposium agenda will include three invited speakers, 10 oral presentations selected from this call for papers, 4-5 panelists, and any number of poster presentations. The symposium will culminate with an afternoon (2:30-4:30) technical tour of the Bullitt Center, a six-story, 52,000 square-foot building that meets the net-zero-energy, net-zero-water “Living Building Challenge,” and is considered to be America’s greenest office building.
