Robert Beverly, Editor
 Engineered Systems

Last month, (July Preview) we looked at the keynote speaker and another featured presentation for Engineered Systems' fall Green Intelligent Buildings Conference in Santa Clara, CA (September 29-30). This month, let's get beyond the high-profile speakers and into the value within the two content tracks.Green Intelligent Buildings Conference

After the speakers, we'll split into two workshops -- Education and Commercial/Corporate Office -- and look at actual intelligent building projects, examining how they deliver today and might prepare for tomorrow. (The Education track will feature Clara Simon talking about her work at the University of Washington. Simon co-authored a recent cover story for ES about an interesting hybrid system retrofit at their campus in Seattle.)

Enterprise systems, middleware, and dashboards take over Track 1 after lunch, with Howard Paulbicke and Tridium's Scott Boehm updating us on the tools available for operating multiple buildings while focusing and streamlining staff.

Meanwhile in Track 2, O&M is the afternoon topic, spearheaded by our friend Paul Ehrlich along with Angela Lewis from Penn State and Molly Meyer of Questions & Solutions Engineering (the firm of our Cx columnist, Rebecca Ellis).

Tuesday's content wraps up with an emerging technology discussion led by contacts from Tridium, Redwood Systems, Scientific Conservation, and CaRon Energy Strategies. Across the hall, an experienced panel takes on metering and benchmarking, with input from Cisco, E-Mon, GIB veteran Tim Kensok of AirAdvice, and Jeff Seewald of Building Intelligence Group (who wrote a feature about this very topic in the upcoming August ES).

Reliable Controls That's all on the first day, along with breakfast, lunch, and a reception. Next month, I'll give you the quick look at the Day 2 content and any last-minute changes. It's the most solid lineup we've had yet. In fact, I'm fairly certain the only way you could walk away from this event without getting your money's worth is if you sleep through the sessions and skip all the networking opportunities.

See the full schedule at, and register to join us for a jam-packed two days.

(The Green Intelligent Buildings Conference is sponsored by Lumisys, E-Mon, Tridium, and Trane. Endorsers include this website, ABMA, Berkeley Lab, Building Intelligence Group, CABA, Lighting Controls Association, and LonMark International. For the first time ever, GIB is also being held in conjunction with the Northern Calfornia Facilities Expo and its Managing Green Buildings component, taking place September 30 - October 1.)
