Building occupants are continuously exposed to multiple indoor environmental stimuli, including thermal, visual, acoustic, and air quality related factors. Moreover, personal and contextual aspects can be regarded as additional domains influencing occupants' perception and behaviour. The scientific literature and current international standards commonly address these domains in isolation. In contrast to such single-domain approaches, multi-domain approaches consider at least two different domains and their interactions, for example, visual and thermal. This workshop is based on the work of IEA EBC Annex 79 Sub-Task 1, which reviewed the scientific literature on interactions and cross-domain effects and looked at necessary conditions for multi-domain indoor environmental quality standards. The results of these reviews suggest that existing multi-domain research is not sufficiently systematic and conclusive.

Within this workshop, the state of art regarding multi-domain research and standardisation will be presented together with barriers in both areas. The presentations are followed by a discussion of ways forward towards systematic research facilitating the establishment of conclusive findings suitable for implementation into international standards.
