therefore we are not surprised to see that what we have been talking about has come to fruition in Chicago in 2006. 2005 has been a very exciting year for our Building Automation Industry as we morphed into IT ways and 2006 promises to be even more exciting. As our services and products become an extension of the Information Technology infrastructure we as an industry are becoming much more visible to the general public. GridWise and the Green Building Movement are further increasing our visibility as an industry moving into a completely new era of information integration.
The AHR Expo is a unique industry venue that allows us to present our sessions free of charge and free of product influence on topics that we hope are of great interest to the industry. Listed below are our session for 2006, come out and join in the fun and provide us your feedback.

The Time is Now for Intelligent Buildings Learn why at AHR Expo Paul Ehrlich, P.E. Building Intelligence Group
I am moderator for the Technology Panel for Intelligent Building Seminar and received this insight from Barry Haaser of LonMark
I asked; Would you please provide our readers some
insight into what they will hear you talk about in our Technology Panel for
Intelligent Building presentation about your enabling technologies?
Barry answers: I will share some exciting new developments underway in the LonMark organization that will have a direct impact on buildings. The LonMark Open Systems standard is evolving beyond simple devices. We have Task Groups actively developing certification programs for programmable controllers, color ballasts, refrigeration, chillers, frequency drives, network tools, connectivity devices and system integrators. These new initiatives will ensure that someone specifies a LonMark Open System in their building, every element of the building certified by LonMark International will not only be interoperable, but interchangeable as well. In an effort to help people get open systems today, we recently released a Master Specification. This free document is available to consultants and specifiers interested in writing open specifications. I will also discuss an exciting new development involving our Interoperable Self Installation (ISI) protocol that is part of the latest version of our Interoperability Guidelines.
