Initiatives for students

IBPSA-Italy and the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano are pleased to announce the

4th Student School on
Building Performance Simulation Applications

Study of the Urban Heat Island effect: from weather data to UBEM simulations with building archetypes

The school, which is part of the special program for graduate and PhD Students, will take place on Wednesday 26th June with an all-day program.


Morning session (9:00 – 12:00)
  • Introduction to UHI phenomena
  • Prof. Marco Manzan (University of Trieste): “Weather data for energy simulation”
  • Prof. Ilaria Ballarini (Polytechnic University of Torino): “UBEM in a changing climate: from the building archetype to the urban archetype concept”

Afternoon session (14:00 – 16:30)
  • Dr. Laura Carnieletto (Ca’ Foscari University of Venice): “Goals and challenges of building archetypes for urban scale energy simulations”
  • Prof. Angelo Zarrella , Dr. Jacopo Vivian and Dr. Enrico Prataviera (University of Padova): “Urban Scale Energy Simulations: modelling approaches, practical aspects and challenges for researchers”

The workshop is open to graduate and PhD students and is included in the registration fee for the conference Building Simulation Applications BSA 2024.
