Smart Building Conference AGENDA

10:00-10:15 Opening and Welcome Bob Snyder, editor-in-chief, rAVe Europe

10:15-10:45 The Smart Home Future: Where Homes Meet Humans, via Technol- ogy and Ecology Geoff Meads, CEDIA education manager

The introduction of technology into the home has been a slow and unorganised process. Small home sub-systems such as AV, the inter- net and door entry can be con- nected together in just a few minutes. Yet most homes aren’t ready to use these technologies to their maximum potential. In this session Geoff Meads will discuss the potential in this mar- ket and go on to see how task engineering can join together dif- ferent systems to answer the needs of real people.

10:45-11:15 From Sustainable AV to Smart Spaces: How the STEP Rating Sys- tem Can Help Sell Smart Building Technology, One Space at a Time

Allen Weidman, executive director, The STEP Foundation/sustainabil- ity officer, InfoComm International

The AV industry is poised to help make the commercial building industry more sustainable and smart building technology is the key. Learn how the Sustainable Technology Environments Pro- gram (STEP) should be one tool in your system integrator's smart building technology sales kit.

11:15-11:45 Coffee break

11:45-12:15 From Smart Rooms to Smart Buildings Graham Naylor-Smith, associate director, Arup

We have seen the complexity of AV systems rise dramatically in recent years. For many clients, these facil- ities are standalone entities, linked only by in the reporting of status information. As convergence of systems at the building level becomes more of a reality, what are the opportunities and tangible benefits of ‘smart’ for building

owners and users, and what does it mean for the AV industry?

12:15-12:45 Case Study: The Smart City Ams- terdam Project Joost Brinkman, senior manager, Accenture

Joost Brinkman was responsible for the Amsterdam Smart City pro- gramme from 2009 to 2011, and played a part in shaping the project from an early stage. His experience makes him highly qualified to dis- cuss international developments around Smart Cities – and specifi- cally the Amsterdam Smart City as an example for the next generation of public-private-citizen partnership towards a low-carbon economy.

12:45-13:15 From Smart Buildings to Sustain- able Cities Lutz Steiner, Dieter Michel, Tech- nische Universität Darmstadt, ABB

We are facing the so-called ‘energy turnaround’ as the energy sector moves from fossil-fuel generation to primarily renewable energy generation. The key chal-

lenge of the energy turnaround is to ensure a steady supply of energy in spite of the fluctuating nature of renewable sources. Tra- ditionally, energy supply has been adjusted to the demand; in future, it will be necessary to adjust the demand, or load, to the fluctuating nature of energy generation. Smart Cities address current challenges related to buildings, mobility, energy generation, infra- structure and communication, and provide appropriate solutions based on the KNX standard.

13:15-14:15 Lunch

14:15-14:45 Multi-Room Media in the Smart Building Era TBC

14:45-15:15 Building Information Modelling: What it Means for the AV Industry Jon Melchin, director of architec- tural business development, FSR/Green AV Task Force, Info- Comm International

This presentation will feature a

look into Building Information Modelling (BIM) – a 3D design, modelling and simulation technol- ogy that has changed the way that architecture is practised. BIM invites tight design discus-

sions, and for AV professionals, this presents a tremendous opportunity to get involved on the ground level of a project, some- times before the first shovelful of dirt is thrown. This will be dis- cussed, as well as other benefits of BIM to AV integration.

15:15-15:45 The Importance of Control in Good Lighting Design Lucy Martin, design director, John Cullen Lighting

15:45 – 16:15 Coffee Break

16:15 – 17:00 Panel Discussion: The Future of the User Interface in Smart Build- ing Control Representatives from Legrand, Crestron, ABB, AMX and Control4

17:00 – 17:30 Wrap-up
