UC Irvine has presented seven “Smart Labs” workshops over the past years. This year’s workshop will be held virtually on March 17 & 18 from 8 a.m.-12:45 p.m. PST. We will provide new content based on our continuing improvements, effectiveness testing, and lessons learned that we hope will be valuable to past Smart Labs workshop attendees. Day one will start with an overview of the program, including the business case that after a decade of experience is even more compelling than predicted, how large organizations such as National Laboratories are implementing the program, and the value of Smart Labs in the context of an infectious disease pandemic. Day two will take a deep dive into the more technical aspects of Smart Labs design, including the extensive informatics layer and our findings about ventilation effectiveness attributes that contribute to aerosol exposure control.
Day 1: Programmatic Challenges and Opportunities of a Smart Labs program
• After a decade of experience, how does the Smart Labs business case hold up?
• Benefits of Integrating Smart Labs Process in Design and Renovation
• Resources and the I2SL Smart Labs Toolkit
• Implementing Smart Labs in Large Research Organizations
• Incremental Implementation for Successive Benefits
• Roundtable – Smart Labs – A No Brainer
Day 2: Performance Stems from the Details of Design and Implementation
• Airflow Management – Before, During and After Covid
• Minimizing Flow to Meet the Demand for Ventilation
• Migrating from Old to New Technologies
• Implementing Technology to Enhance Operations Management
• Utilization of Commissioning and Data Analytics
Although this year’s workshop will be aimed at Smart Labs adopters and past attendees, newcomers are welcome, but encouraged to contact us in advance so that we can send you some materials to review. Email us at email@example.com.
