Urban Physics Winter School 2015, Jan 2015, Switzerland

Posted By: Jonas Allegrini
Date:Tue, 8 Jul 2014, 1:42 p.m.

Scope: The school aims at providing the participants with in-depth knowledge on the latest advances in the fields of climate science, building aerodynamics, meteorology, urban microclimate and human physiology, as well as on the impacts of these developments on e.g. the mitigation of urban heat islands, urban energy and the improvement of human comfort, safety and health. The idea is to bring the participants in contact with leading researchers in the field, to encourage a constructive and open dialogue and to incite collaborations between theorists and experimentalists at an international level.

Programme: The School starts with an icebreaker reception (Sunday). The lectures are thematically organized into four themes, namely air, water, fire and earth . Halfway a social excursion is planned. The tentative program can be found in the table below. All lectures will be taught in English. Lecture notes will be provided digitally.

Accommodation: Participants will stay at the Congressi Stefano Franscini (CSF) conference centre at Monte Verita. The centre is situated on the hill behind Ascona, overlooking Lago Maggiore. Since a limited number of single rooms is available on site, room sharing is encouraged. The registration form has an option to specify the name of someone you wish to share with. For single rooms a surcharge has to be paid. Lunch and dinner are buffet meals with drinks and coffee included. The first meal is the evening meal on Sunday the 25th, and the last meal is lunch on Friday the 30th.

Registration: Participants can register until September 25, 2014 at the fee of 970 CHF (800 euro) per person. Later registration will cost 1270 CHF. Registration fee covers course material, accommodation (shared double room) and full board. Payments by credit card upon registration via registration plattform. The number of participants is limited to 35.
