Third International Urban Heat Island Conference in Venice, Italy on October 13-15, 2014
Posted: 22/09/2014 14:06

The Third International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Islands, IC2UHI, will be devoted to the science, engineering and public policies to help relieve the excess heat and air pollution in urban environments. It has long been recognized that the excessive heat and smog in many cities, the “Urban Heat Island” (UHI), is partly due to the choices of building materials, vegetation and urban design. Scientists, engineers, builders, architects, and government officials concerned with improving the urban environment are urged to participate in the 3rd IC2UHI.

Papers are invited in areas addressing all aspects of countermeasures to UHI and microclimate mitigation including:

  • Cool materials development & characteristics
  • Urban vegetation and greenery
  • Measurement techniques and standards
  • Policies, rating and labeling programs
  • Remote sensing of cities and urban climates
  • Outdoor comfort and health in the urban environment
  • Analysis of UHI and its effects across scales
  • Modeling and forecasting urban climate and weather
  • Impact of UHI on the urban economy
  • Resilient design of buildings in response to changing climates
