Track 1:

Applications at the Intersection of Analytics and Control – In this session, community members will present examples of applications where the results of analytics are being coupled with control actions to execute changes in the operation of building systems.

The call for presenters for this session is open. We have openings for three presenters focusing on applications where analytic results are used to drive commands to external systems.


Applications at the Intersection of Human Activity – The majority of issues identified through the use of analytics require human action to address. Driving that workflow requires effectively communicating results to users—from technicians and building engineers, to energy managers and financial managers. Presentations in this session will focus on the use of visualization tools to communicate and drive the workflow process.
