While I port information from other places, please refer to the BEMNext Lab (http://www.bemnext.org) in the meanwhile.
I have started a small FAQ below which I will expand in the future.
What is BEMNext?
BEM is an abbreviation of Built Environment Modelling. BEMNext is a term to indicate the next generation of BEM we are looking for.
For more information on our research, please visit the BEMNext Laboratory (http://www.bemnext.org) at Delft University of Technology or contact me.
