\nHigh performance building technology changes rapidly! As practitioners respond to these changes, educators must also remain focused on providing the most current information to students to best prepare them for jobs in this field. To best understand the latest technological and educational innovation a global approach is required, as professionals throughout the world have adopted these practices in innovative ways.
\nIf you are a high performance building practitioner, a researcher, or an academic professional/student at the community college, four-year college, or research university level, read on. We would like to see you in Lansing, Michigan in June 2013 for this unique, global conference.
\nThis conference is unique in that high performance building educators, researchers, and practitioners will come together to discuss cutting edge technology and its impacts on the design-engineering-construction process as well as the implications for education in these topics. Conference attendees will have many networking opportunities and chances to share in the transfer of best practices and the latest technologies and techniques among industry professionals and educators.
