A leading conference on the indoor environment, Indoor Air & Climate-2008, will take place August, 17-22 2008 in Denmark. The conference will attract 1,000 to 1,500 participants from around the world.

2008 marks the 30th anniversary since the first of these tri-annual conferences, which took place in Copenhagen on the initiative of the late Professor Fanger, Technical University of Copenhagen. The site of the upcoming conference will again be the Technical University of Denmark.

The indoor environment has a significant influence on our health, comfort and productivity. We spend more than 90% of our time in indoor environments, including our home, our workplace, and our vehicles. In the Nordic countries, and in most of the world, a third of our energy is used for building HVAC to provide an acceptable indoor environment. Therefore, it’s essential to provide an optimal indoor environment in an energy efficient manner.

 The conference will be multidisciplinary; researchers (engineering, medicine, psychology, architecture, etc.) will meet practitioners and users (consulting engineers, doctors, producers of building materials and furnishings, producers of HVAC systems, builders, etc.) responsible for the indoor environment in our buildings. This congress will be an opportunity to share and discuss knowledge with specialists from around the world.  The deadline for submitting abstracts is October 15, 2007.

A small exhibition is also planned for about 20-25 companies. For further information on the exhibition visit www.indoorair2008.org/ or email info@indoorair2008.org.
