ICAE 2015, Donostia-San Sebastian 27-29 May 2015


TECNALIA R&I hosts the VII International Congress on Architectural Envelopes (ICAE 2015) on 27, 28 and 29 May 2015. The event, which is held every 3 years, will take place at the Kursal Congress Center at Donostia – San Sebastian (Spain). The main topic of the Congress is related to “Smartization” and/or the introduction of new technologies in Architectural Envelopes.

 The Advanced Material and NAnotechnology Cluster (AMANAC) aims to maximize the impact of the cluster participating projects towards the European Industry and Society. In collaboration with TECNALIA, the AMANAC projects have been allocated time in the frame of the ICAE Congress to present project results and to promote the scope of the Cluster.

The following AMANAC events are planned:

 27 May 2015: “AMANAC projects special session” (time 11.30 – 16.45)

The Session will cover oral presentations and posters.

Topics to be covered are:

  • Buildings with low embodied energy materials
  • Lightweight materials and components for construction
  • Nano based insulation systems
  • Nano based HVAC systems
  • Healthier indoor environment
  • Smart windows

 28 May 2015: “AMANAC FIRE Workshop” (11.30 – 14.00)

As part of the AMANAC-CSA activities, a workshop on fire engineering will be organized under the ICAE umbrella. The workshop will address four topics:

  • New trends in fire-retardant materials
  • Reaction to Fire and Resistance to Fire Testing and related European Regulations: Challenges for advanced Materials
  • Façade and Structural fire Testing: State of the Art and future needs
  • Computational tools for Fire Research: Potentials and link to Performance based Codes.
