Committees

CISBAT 2019 is chaired by Prof. Jean-Louis Scartezzini of the EPFL Solar Energy and Building Physics Laboratory backed by a strong international scientific committee.

Our main academic partners are Cambridge University (Prof. Koen Steemers) and MIT (Prof. Leon Glicksman). On a scientific level, CISBAT 2019 also acts as a platform for the Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research (SCCER) "Future Energy Efficient Buildings & Districts (FEEB&D)" and the Swiss Chapter of the International Building Performance Simulation Association IBPSA.
