ICUC10 Call for Papers

ICUC10, August 6-10, 2018; New York, New York

First Call for Abstracts

The 10th International Conference on Urban Climate (ICUC10) jointly with the 14th Symposium on the Urban Environment (SUE) of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) will be held August 6-10, 2018 at the historical campus of the City College of New York of the City University of New York in the Upper West Side neighbourhood of New York City.  The conference theme is Sustainable and Resilient Urban Environments. The event is hosted and co-organized by the NOAA CREST Institute of the City University of New York, The International Association for Urban Climate (IAUC) and the AMS Board on the Urban Environment. ICUC10 is also supported by international organizations including the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).  ICUC10 comes at a time when accelerated urban development is challenged by the risks and consequences of extreme weather and climate events and global socio-economic disparity.  Resiliency and reduced vulnerability to all socio economic sectors have become critical elements to achieve sustainable development.  ICUC10 will be the premier forum for these discussions. 

The conference format will include: workshops, key note speakers, concurrent technical sessions, and discussion panels.  Planned session-themes will include emerging and traditional topics in urban climate including, but not limited to, the following topics: global climate change and urbanization; urban resiliency; impacts of extreme weather and climate on urban environments, urban air quality, heat stress, and public health; weather forecasting for cities; urban development and sustainability; adaptation and mitigation strategies; smart cities and urban planning; urban climate; urban energy and water balances; urban canopy and roughness sublayers; modeling, observation, and input data requirements for understanding and predicting interdisciplinary urban phenomena; and urban hydrology.  Proposals for additional program suggestions are encouraged, please contact the program chairs to submit proposals for special sessions of interest.

Please submit your abstract for papers or special sessions by 15 December 2017 at the Conference Web page at https://www.ametsoc.org/ams/index.cfm/meetings-events/ams-meetings/10th-international-conference-on-urban-climate-14th-symposium-on-the-urban-environment/ Outstanding oral and poster student presentations will be recognized at the conference.  The Conference will be offering a few travel awards to help supplement travel expenses for current AMS or IAUC student members presenting at the meeting. Instructions for travels awards will be announced before the abstract deadline.
