Dear Students and Families: Although it feels a bit more like winter today, there are now less than 30 days until the end of the spring semester. I hope you spent yesterday’s Wellness Day resting and recharging in anticipation of…
16th Annual SyracuseCoE Symposium
Advances in research and technology are catalyzing transformations in education and practice for sustainable and resilient built environments. In SyracuseCoE’s 16th Annual Symposium, presentations will address emerging innovations across many scales, from high-performance buildings to human-centered urban design, from nanoscale-enabled energy systems to cyberphysical interactive environments, and from smart grids and power system resiliency to adaptive building systems and performance augmentation materials.
SyracuseCoE, New York State’s Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems at Syracuse University, presents the 16th annual Symposium on Transforming Design and Energy for a Sustainable and Resilient Future. It will be held on Sept. 21 and 22 at the Crowne Plaza at 701 E. Genesee St. and at SyracuseCoE Headquarters, 727 E. Washington St., in Syracuse.
The one-and-a-half day SyracuseCoE Symposium brings together experts on high-performance buildings, the electrical system and smart grids, and opportunities for future innovations impacting the built environment. This year will feature several keynote speakers, and more than 40 speakers in sessions that address topics in design, energy and futures. The event also includes a poster session and competition featuring students from throughout the region, a dynamic networking reception and a sneak preview of new SyracuseCoE Laboratories.
Keynote speakers include:
Michelle Addington, Hines Professor of Sustainable Architectural Design at Yale University, will present “Technological Pasts and Futures.”
Jennifer Gerbi, program director, ARPA-E, will present “ARPA-E: Saving Energy Outside the Box.”
Gurdip Singh, associate dean for research, College of Engineering and Computer Science, Syracuse University, will present “Perspectives on Smart and Connected Communities and Cyber-Physical Systems.”
Skylar Tibbits, director of the Self-Assembly Lab, MIT, will present “Self-Assembly & Programmable Materials.”
Fei Wang, assistant professor at the School of Architecture, Syracuse University, will present “Design Energy Futures.”
“The SyracuseCoE Symposium offers our stakeholders in academia, industry and government an opportunity to come together with others in the community to share cutting-edge research and develop new collaborations to address key challenges and opportunities for clean energy innovations for a vibrant future.” says Ed Bogucz, executive director of SyracuseCoE.
“Attendees will take away knowledge about the latest research in sustainable and resilient built environments that range from nano-scale to city-scale.” says Symposium Committee Chair Tarek Rakha from Syracuse University’s School of Architecture. “Topics will address integration of design with energy for a sustainable future within the confines of new market conditions.”
