5th International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Islands (IC2UHI)
December 2, 2019 - December 4, 2019
Countering Urban Heat Island (UHI)
The first International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Islands (IC2UHI) was held in 2006 at Tokyo and since then it’s been conducted at various locations such as Berkeley (California), Venice, and Singapore.
The Fifth International Conference on Countermeasure to Urban Heat Islands (5th IC2UHI), will be hosted at Hyderabad, India and 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 5th IC2UHI which promises to advance the field.
