Countering Urban Heat Island (UHI)
The Fourth International Conference on Countermeasure to Urban Heat Islands (4th IC2UHI), will be devoted to the science, engineering and public policies to help relieve the excess heat and air pollution of Summers in hot cities. It has long been recognized that the excessive heat and smog in many cities in the summer, the “Urban Heat Island”, is partly due to the choices of building materials, vegetation and urban design.
Scientist, engineers, builders, architects, and government officials, especially, but not limited to Asia Pacific countries, concerned with improving the urban environment are urged to participate in 4th IC2UHI which promises to advance the field.
Selected Conference papers will be published in Energy and Buildings Journal, Special Issue: Countering urban Heat Island (UHI) and Climate Change Through Mitigation and Adaptation.
