11th Windsor Conference


    16th – 19th April 2020

    In this our last Windsor Conference ever, we hope to confront head on the critical comfort challenges posed by the climate crisis we are living through now, and passing on to our children. Papers are invited from members of the worldwide ‘Windsor Family’ of researchers, and from any quarter in research, industry or government where Big Ideas are being explored about:

    • Comfort in a heating world: evidence from the field
    • Creating resilient heating and cooling
    • New thinking on the better buildings design to cope with increasing climate extremes
    • Resilient comfort policy innovations
    • Technologies for resilient comfort 
    • The role of re-thinking and managing behaviours in affordable comfort for all
    • Comfort and energy use

    As always places are limited in Cumberland Lodge and registration will largely require the submission of a full paper.  In 2019 we reached out in a brilliant Conference in Dubai to explore the topic of Comfort at the Extremes, and that Conference is set to continue in the future.  The full proceedings and workshop reports from it may well chime with, and inform, papers you are planning to submit for Windsor 2020.  We look forward to an epoch making event then, as befits the Conference’s achievements over the last 26 years in helping to reset the international agenda for comfort and energy use in buildings.
