The next International Conference on Urban Climate (ICUC-11) will take place in Sydney, Australia from August 30 to September 3, 2021. The Board of the International Association for Urban Climate (IAUC) selected the team in Sydney with its proposal “Cities as Living Labs: Climate, Vulnerability, and Multidisciplinary Solutions“ on April 4, 2019. The Board’s decision follows the results of a membership consultation in March. In the membership consultation, a strong preference for Sydd ney emerged. From a total of 240 voters, 64% ranked Sydney their first choice, followed by 19% that ranked “Hong Kong” first and 17% that ranked “Beijing” first.

The University of New South Wales (UNSW) who will host ICUC-11 has also received support from the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Board on the Urban Environment (BUE) to run ICUC-11 together with the Symposium on the Urban Environment (AMS-BUE). UNSW will collaborate with other Australian Universities and Research Institutes in hosting this conference.

The next International Conference on Urban Climate (ICUC-11) will take place in Sydney, Australia between August 30 and September 3, 2021.

Dr. Negin Nazarian, who leads the organising committee, welcomes the IAUC community to Sydney: “We greatly appreciate the vote of confidence from the IAUC memd bers. We truly believe that Sydney is an ideal venue for bringing in the diverse and international Urban Climate community, and look forward to welcoming all members in Sydney, Australia, for the 11th International Conference on Urban Climate (ICUC-11) in 2021.”

ICUC-11 will be hosted on the campus of UNSW. The Sir John Clancy auditorium offers tiered seating for up to 945 participants in plenary sessions. The adjacent Matd thews Pavillions will provide a contemporary semidend closed space for exhibitions, poster display and catering. A number of nearby theatres and lecture rooms will offer spaces for concurrent sessions and workshops.

The board congratulates the team from Sydney which will make a highly attractive venue for our flagship meetd ing. The board also greatly appreciates the work and willingness by all candidate teams to host ICUC-11, including Beijing and Hong Kong who each developed very attractive proposals, but were ultimately unsuccessful.
