Building Simulation: An International Journal announces a topical issue on: IAQ and Indoor Pollution Modelling

Dear Colleagues,

The  IAQVEC  Conference  is  the  premier  international  event  in  the  field  of  indoor  air quality  and  simulation.  The 10th IAQVEC Conference is held in Bari, Italy in 2019 and is dedicated to the latest advancements on the building simulation, validation, interpretation of results.

The role of building simulation is of the foremost importance to meet the requirements of healthy nearly zero energy buildings, to evaluate the level of sustainability of buildings. Among the topics of the IAQVEC 2019 Conference, the topical issue on “IAQ and Indoor Pollution Modelling” addresses the following ones:

  • Air quality modelling
  • Simulation of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Pollution modeling
  • Pollution dispersion
  • Healthy Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (ZEB)

Submissions  are  invited  from  selected  conference  papers  that  will  be  accepted  and  presented  at  the  Conference.  The selection of conference papers to be invited to contribute to this topical issue will be done from the Scientific Committee of the Conference.

Paper submissions: When preparing your manuscript, please follow the Instructions for Authors of Building Simulation, which can be downloaded from the journal website ( 

Submit  your  paper  online  at  and  mark  “Topical  Issue  on  IAQ  and  Indoor  Pollution  Modelling” in your manuscript.
