Revised Full Paper
The Revised Full Paper has to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 April 2016.
A. Abstract Categories
Papers are invited on the following subjects:
- Special topic: Recent UHI and climate change research from cities in Asia Pacific and tropical countries
- Relationship between UHI, urban planning, building energy consumption, and human comfort
- Anthropogenic heat and urban pollution
- Cooling effects (evaporation and evapotranspiration) from natural sources, such as vegetation, lakes, rivers, and ground
- Simulation and analysis studies of UHI and its effects across different scales, including urban microclimate measurement and urban ventilation
- Social and economic dimensions: UHI impacts on economy, health, and quality of life
- Government policies on UHI mitigation and adaptation
- Stakeholder (citizen, industry, and government) investments and feedback in cool cities
- Building energy savings and air pollution reduction from cool surface deployment (field experiments and new analysis methods)
- Development of novel cool materials for UHI mitigation
- Development of performance testing standards for cool materials
- Cool roof rating programs
B. Abstract Submission Guidelines
- Abstracts must be submitted in English.
- Only abstracts submitted via the online abstract submission portal will be accepted.
- Abstract format:
1. Include background, methods, results, discussion, and conclusions.
2. Do not include section headings.

- There are no page or word limits for accepted papers.
- The conference proceedings will be indexed with Elsevier to make the conference papers more accessible (to be confirmed).
- After the conference, selected papers will undergo a peer-review process for publication in a special issue of Energy and Buildings: Countering Urban Heat Island (UHI) and Climate Change Through Mitigation and Adaptation.
