The European Conference of Product and Process Modelling (ECPPM) is a biannual conference series dating back to 1994. ECPPM was the first BIM conference founded on the basis of European BIM research projects preceding IFC and BuildingSMART and has fostered BIM development over the last 18 years. The conference series has gained a recognized position as an important event in the international AEC/FM ICT research agenda. Although with European roots, the ECPPM attracts delegates and prominent speakers from all around the world providing delegates with valuable knowledge and discourse on latest state of the art in ICT research and development in the AEC/FM industry.

The ECPPM 2012 brought together leading experts from academia, research, software development and the construction industry to report on, demonstrate and discuss latest achievements both theoretical and practical, emerging trends and future directions in product and process modelling technology and innovative ICT in this dynamic and fragmented industry.

HYPERTECH Energy Labs participated in the 3rd Workshop on eeBuildings Data Models (Energy Efficiency Vocabularies) presenting the paper entitled "Occupancy and Business Modelling". Capitalizing on the actual effect of building occupancy in the overall energy consumption during the early design phases of a building, the paper addresses the need for a common set of reference models definition for correlating the building information models and the business processes models of an organization.
