Building Simulation Applications (BSA) 2019 was the fourth IBPSA-Italy conference on building performance simulation to take place at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, from 19th to 21st June 2019. The main topics dealt with were urban simulation, building energy performance assessment, hygrothermal analyses, detailed modelling of physical phenomena and building system components, advanced HVAC controls, integrated performance analysis, and visual, thermal and acoustic comfort assessment.
The principal mission of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) is to promote and advance the practice of building performance simulation in order to improve the design, construction, operation and maintenance of new and existing buildings.
IBPSA-Italy, the Italian affiliate, is a non-profit association, which includes researchers, developers and practitioners acting on the topic of building performance simulation. IBPSA-Italy was founded in January 2011 and has now more than 170 members including university professors, researchers, professionals, software developers and students.
