The 13th Nordic Symposium on Building Physics (NSB 2023) took place at Aalborg University in the city of Aalborg, Denmark, from the 12th to the 14th of June, 2023. This conference was organised by the Department of the Built Environment of Aalborg University, with the help of fellow researchers from Aarhus University, the University of Southern Denmark and the Technical University of Denmark.
NSB is a renowned international conference series in Building Physics, held every three years since 1987. Although organised in Nordic countries, the conference is in English and is not limited to cold climates. It has grown to attract participants worldwide, to the point that more than half of the participants have been from other countries.
This symposium is intended to be a forum for scientists, practitioners, PhD students and other building professionals to share new research results, demonstrate innovative and sustainable building technologies, and discuss current and future challenges and solutions within building physics, heat, air and moisture transfer in buildings, and on aspects of moisture problems in the built environment, energy performance and indoor environmental quality. The NSB 2023 central theme is “Building physics as a key player for the sustainable built environment”. The conference focus is primarily on the following aspects that all require a throughout understanding of building physics:
•Heat, air and moisture transport
•Measurement and modelling techniques
•Material properties
•Contaminant transfer (gas phase, airborne pollutants)
•Outdoor and indoor climate for building physics analysis
•Hygrothermal performance of building envelope
•Advanced building envelope systems
•Air-tightness, air movement inside and around the buildings
•Building materials and components
•Climate change and climate adaptation of buildings
•Moisture and mould problems
•Investigation methods of moisture and microbial damages
•Moisture safety in design, construction, and maintenance
•Durability of materials and structures
•Repair methods
•Architectural design integration
•Interaction with HVAC systems and solar shading
•Indoor environmental quality: air quality, daylight, thermal comfort and acoustics
•Passive, active and low-energy buildings, zero-emission buildings
•Retrofitting and conservation of buildings, including historical buildings
•Building sustainability and circularity
•Integrated BIM solutions for building physics, energy performance and indoor environmental quality
•Education about building physics: innovative tools and methods
The 250 participants of NSB 2023 attended a total of 3 keynotes, 186 paper presentations (149 Scientific Papers and 37 Technical Papers) and one workshop over 3 days and 34 sessions. The Scientific Papers (6-8 pages) are published in the present IOP Journal of Physics: Conference Series proceedings. The Technical Papers (1-6 pages) are published by Aalborg University in a dedicated book of technical papers. All papers presented at NSB 2023 and published in the proceedings or book of technical papers went through a 3-stage double-blind peer-review process: review and acceptance of the abstract, first round of review for the full paper, second round of review of the revised paper, final decision on the paper. All reviews were conducted by the 124 members of the scientific community.
