Call for papers closes on May 23rd, 2008

ATLANTA, Georgia (May 15, 2008) - BACnet® International today announced that it has partnered with BNP Media, publisher of Engineered Systems, to host the first annual Green Sustainable Building Controls (GSBC) Conference in September 2008 in Dallas, Texas. This is the first conference of its kind focusing exclusively on the use of BACnet and other building automation standards in the design of green buildings. This three-day conference is designed for building owners and facility management professionals and will focus on green, sustainable build design, operations, integration, building automation, energy savings and lighting control.

“The timing couldn’t be better for a conference like this,” said BACnet® International President, and President/CEO of Teletrol Systems, Andy McMillan. He continues, “two of the most important trends in building automation technology are standardization of equipment integration around the BACnet® protocol and the deployment of more green, sustainable building systems designs. We expect that all conference attendees will walk away with practical ideas and strategic perspectives that enhance their own sustainable systems efforts.”

Robert Beverly, Editor of Engineered Systems, commented, “we are very excited to be partnering with BACnet International again to produce this event, since they have been doing so much to advance sustainable building automation practices. Our own readers can come and learn more about concepts we've been covering, hearing firsthand the latest insights from this year's array of presenters. Whether you're pursuing LEED certification or just trying to make the most of your current building systems, these three days will offer a wealth of knowledge about the strategies and benefits behind intelligent and high-performance buildings.”

The event will take place at the Fairmont Dallas, in Dallas, Texas from Monday, September 22nd through Wednesday the 24th. Early bird registration ends on July 30th and provides a discounted rate of $450 for BACnet® International members. Click here to register!
