IBPSA Seattle

Working Meetings

At the IBPSA Seattle 2014 kickoff meeting we decided as a group to slightly change the focus of working meetings toward smaller examples and more discussion. The new structure of the meetings that we’ll explore for the next few months is a meeting agenda that will generally follow the outline below:

Introduction (5 min)

The moderator will start the meeting, explain the objectives of the working meetings for anyone attending for the first time, then introduce the presenter.

Demonstration (5 min)

A volunteer will provide a 5 minute demonstration of a topic to start the discussion.  The 5 minute guideline is meant to minimize effort and maximize participation by volunteers. It can be longer if desired.

  • Anyone can sign up to demonstrate a topic.
  • The topic can be a how-to, a question, or a general comment.
  • It is preferred that the demonstration involve a live model, not a slide deck.
  • It is preferred that the model be uploaded to the IBPSA Seattle website and made available to the public.  This is a preference, not a requirement, and is ultimately up to the presenter.

Open Discussion (15 - 50 min)

The discussion is intended to start with the topic of the demonstration, but may go from there in any direction the group wishes to take it.  The primary objective of working meetings is to provide a live forum for energy modelers to discuss, demonstrate, and learn about relevant topics specific to the energy modeling community.  Anyone attending the meeting is welcome and encouraged to participate in the discussion.

   
Help Desk Questions (Optional)

If the main discussion slows down, a question from one of the popular energy modeling forums will be chosen and presented by a volunteer as a second topic of discussion.

 

We’ll start by scheduling three months of meetings. An in-person meeting will be scheduled in April/May to discuss the satisfaction of the new meeting structure and schedule the next group of meetings.

Please consider volunteering!!! For each of the meetings, we need a volunteer to give a 5 minute demonstration of a topic to start the discussion, and a volunteer to choose a question from one of the popular energy modeling forums and be prepared to introduce the question to start a second discussion.

 

If you have a topic you would like to see demonstrated in a working meeting, please add a description of your topic to the following Google Spreadsheet:  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqSF-zytKvuKdEFYeU9lT3FKZVJfVC1LMWJnZHBWWEE&usp=sharing
