The International Association for Urban Climate (IAUC) warmly invites you to the Seventh International Conference on Urban Climate (ICUC-7) to be held in Yokohama, Japan from June 29 to July 3, 2009. ICUC-7 is the continuation of a series of similar conferences starting in Kyoto, Japan in 1989, followed by those in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 1993, Essen, Germany in 1996, Sydney, Australia in 1999, Lodz, Poland in 2003, and Göteborg, Sweden in 2006. The success of this series helped to create a cohesive international community of urban climatologists.

The aims of the conference remain as before, to provide an international forum where the world's urban climatologists can meet to showcase and discuss modern developments in research, and the application of climatic knowledge to the design of better cities. ICUC-7 wishes to cater to the interests of a diverse community of meteorologists, climatologists, hydrologists, ecologists, engineers, architects and planners and others interested in these topics. On behalf of the organisers we are honoured to invite you to attend the Seventh International Conference on Urban Climate in Yokohama, Japan in 2009.

Dr. Manabu Kanda, ICUC-7 Local Organizer
Dr. Matthias Roth, President of IAUC


Host city

Yokohama is the second most populated city in Japan following Tokyo. The total population is 3,584,895 (as of March 2006). The City of Yokohama is a beautiful resort and port city located on Tokyo Bay, where you can discover the truly Japanese beauty of the futuristic waterfront skyscrapers. As the first Japanese port to open its gates to the world in 1859, Yokohama has created an interesting blend of Japanese and western cultures. Yokohama has an extensive range of convention facilities from the world-class convention complex, PACIFICO Yokohama to Nissan Stadium, which hosted the FIFA World Cup final in 2002. Yokohama is also known as a city rich in excitement with unique attractions such as the world’s biggest Chinatown, expansive shopping districts and a traditional Japanese garden and hot-spring facility. PACIFICO Yokohama are the main facilities serving Minato Mirai 21 (MM21). MM21 is the name of a project launched with an intention to dramatically transform the metropolitan area of Yokohama. Many people have come to know the spectacles of Minato Mirai 21 (MM21), which include Japan's tallest building, Yokohama Landmark Tower, a large Ferris wheel called "Cosmo Clock 21" which has made many appearances on TV commercials, and the city's new landmark, Yokohama Akarenga (Red Brick Warehouse).
