International Association for Housing Science (IAHS) World Congress

The theme “Sustainable Housing Construction” of the congress will be an ideal forum to disseminate recent advances and discuss future trends towards a more sustainable and energy-efficient construction industry. The main purpose of the congress is to debate topics related to new environmentally friendly construction materials and technologies, energy efficiency in buildings, waste management, and other topics linked to sustainability in construction. However, the broad scope of the International Association for Housing (IAHS) series of congresses also makes this an excellent place to discuss any issue related to housing science.
