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:
The Conference will be held in Venice, Italy, at the Island of San Servolo Conference Center (8 minutes from San Marco Square by water bus).
After the conference, selected articles will undergo a peer-review process for publication in highly esteemed journals. A book covering many topics will also be published to give wide exposure to the conference work.
