This symposium presents two tracks, one practical and one more theoretical, divided in ten topics, and presented in three parallel sessions. Two new topics are introduced; “Historical Buildings” and “Challenges for the future”. The intention of adding Historical Buildings is to gather people with different backgrounds, for example Building Physicists, Building antiquarians, Building Biologists, Architects, City planners etc. in a common forum. The
interest for questions related to “Challenges of the Future” is growing rapidly. This area requires competence from many different specialities for example environmental impact, climate change, meteorology, and risk assessment.

Three keynote lectures related to the above subjects will be given at the symposium. Professor Johnny Kronvall, who organized the first symposium in 1987, will speak about “Building Physics – an attempt to a 30 years´ evolution story”, M.Sc. Anders Kumlin will
concentrate on the practical applications in ”Practical Moisture Problems”. The last keynote
lecture is Professor Mark Bomberg who will present his thoughts in ”A personal view on Building Physics: An address in the Nordic BP Symposium 2014”...
