Climate change, health, comfort and energy are major world-wide concerns and research topics. In urban areas, these topics are strongly inter-related. The physical processes involved are commonly referred to as “Urban Physics”. Urban Physics covers a wide range of spatial scales, from the global scale down to the material scale and the human scale. Urban Physics is therefore inherently multi-scale and multi-disciplinary. This Urban Physics Autumn School explicitly focuses on the multi-scale and multi-disciplinary aspects. Topics range from climate change over urban acoustics and urban wind energy to human thermophysiology and material science.
This Urban Physics Autumn School is organized by Eindhoven University of Technology in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) and the University of Cyprus. It follows the two previous Urban Physics Schools organized by ETHZ (2011) and by the University of Cyprus (2012).
The Autumn School is designed especially for doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers and intends to provide state-of-the-art knowledge in Urban Physics, focused on its multi-scale, multi-disciplinary and multi-phase character, including computational modeling and experiments. We look forward to welcoming you at this Autum School to meet experts and colleagues working in this exciting field!
