International Journal of Building PhysicsEditor: Mark Bomberg
Link: www.journals.sagepub.com
Description: The Journal of Building Physics, formerly known as the Journal of Thermal Envelope and Building Science, focuses on the thermal performance of building materials, particularly thermal insulation systems. The journal provides a permanent record of achievements in the science, technology and economics of building envelope. Implicit is the recognition and appropriate publication of the accomplishments of all participating interests.

Proceedings of the 3rd International Building Physics ConferenceProceedings of the 3rd International Building Physics Conference
Editors: Paul Fazio, Hua Ge, Jiwu Rao, Guylaine Desmarais
Title: Research in Building Physics and Building Engineering. Proceedings of the 3rd International Building Physics Conference, 27-31 august 2006, Montreal, Canada.
Description: Buildings influence people. They account for one third of energy consumption across the globe and represent an annual capital expenditure of 7%-10% of GNP in industrialized countries. Their lifetime operation costs can exceed capital investment. Building Engineering aims to make buildings more efficient, safe and economical. One branch of this discipline, Building Physics/Science, has gained prominence, with a heightened awareness of such phenomena as sick buildings, the energy crisis and sustainability, and considering the performance of buildings in terms of climatic loads and indoor conditions. The book reflects the advanced level and high quality of research which Building Engineering, and Building Physics/Science in particular, have reached at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It will be a valuable resource to: engineers, architects, building scientists, consultants on the building envelope, researchers and graduate students.

Proceedings of the 4th International Building Physics ConferenceProceedings of the 4th International Building Physics Conference
Editors: Gülten Manioğlu
Title: Proceedings of the 4th International Building Physics Conference, 15-18 June 2009, Istanbul, Turkey.
Description: The main theme of the fourth International Building Physics Conference held in Istanbul was determined as “Energy efficiency and new approaches”. Building physics is the cornerstone of designing, constructing, and operating high performance buildings which are durable, comfortable, energy efficient, affordable, sustainable and healthy.

Proceedings of the 5th International Building Physics ConferenceProceedings of the 5th International Building Physics Conference
Editors: Shuichi Hokoi
Title: Proceedings of the 5th International Building Physics Conference (IBPC), Kyoto, Japan,May 28-31, 2012
Description: The main theme of the conference was “The Role of Building Physics in Resolving the Carbon Reduction Challenge and the Promotion of Human Health in Buildings.”The 4th report of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has covered the detailed and acrimonious discussions that have occurred in COP (Conference of the Parties) meetings. Thus, the reduction of CO2 emissions and energy consumption have become essential issues. Moreover, the need for a healthy and comfortable indoor environment is a critical issue because of a rapidly aging society with a declining younger generation. This has inevitably raised concerns about energy usage in buildings, which constitutes a large fraction of the total energy consumption.

Description: IBPC 2015 was focused on the theme “Building Physics for a Sustainable Built Environment” and invited participation and paper submissions across a broad range of topics relevant to the main subject of Building Physics. The conference provided a forum for scientists, researchers and practitioners from all over the world to disseminate technical information, new ideas, the latest developments and discuss future direction in the fields of building physics. The conference was attended by more than 650 delegates coming from 47 countries. This issue contains 609 manuscripts selected and peer reviewed by the review committee of IBPC 2015. The topics covered by the conference included: energy efficient design and retrofit of buildings, indoor environment control for comfort and/or preservation, IAQ and ventilation, building and architectural acoustics, noise control, lighting, visual and acoustic comfort, building material and components, energy and economic sustainability of high performing buildings, optimization and modelling techniques as well as a broad range of building integrated RES (Renewable Energy Sources) and ZEB (Zero Energy Buildings)
