This interdisciplinary Hot Topics Workshop "Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Control, Optimization, and Design of Energy-E¬fficient Buildings" will present the state of the art in the mathematical and computational aspects that arise in energy-efficient building design. It will provide participants with the opportunity to share ideas, foster collaboration, and gain a deeper understanding of the problems and challenges of managing and designing energy-efficient buildings and the progress made so far.
The intended audience for the workshop includes mathematicians, scientists, and engineers interested in the latest developments and challenges in the mathematical and computational sciences for design, optimization, and control of energy-efficient buildings. The workshop will feature a combination of both research talks and tutorials presented by practitioners of diverse disciplines from industry, government, and academia.
