You are invited to the free BACnet New England user group meeting supported by BACnet International on November 7, 2017 at Boston University. The purpose of the BACnet User Group is to bring together the local BACnet user community twice a year to share tips, techniques and pains on the use of the BACnet products and technologies.
Here is some information about the event and speakers:
The meeting will be held at the Center for Integrated Life Sciences & Engineering. This $150 million, nine-story, state-of-the-art research facility brings together life scientists, engineers, and physicians from the Medical and Charles River Campuses. The 170,000-square-foot building includes neuroscience research, systems/synthetic biology research, a satellite vivarium, and a cognitive neuroimaging center.
We will have a tour of the building and a brief lecture about BU BACnet experience.
Our main speakers are:
