The 1st International Conference on Moisture in Buildings Proceedings on ScienceOpen

ScienceOpen provides open access publishing for ICMB21

ScienceOpen provides open access publishing for conference proceedings in our unique Collection infrastructure. This gives conferences an online presence and increases dissemination and awareness of conference proceedings through integration in ScienceOpen’s discovery environment. Most recently, ScienceOpen has worked with the UK Centre for Moisture in Buildings (UKCMB) to publish the 1st International Conference on Moisture in Buildings (ICMB21) proceedings. ICMB21 will take place online this summer on June 28th and 29th, and accepted conference papers have already been made available in the ICMB21 Featured Collection on ScienceOpen. This gives conference-goers more time to read through the papers and prepare or already begin discussion of the topics to be presented during the conference.  

Explore Conference Papers with advanced search tools 

With nearly 80 papers so far, there are a lot of interesting results to sift through in the ICMB21 Collection. By using ScienceOpen’s advanced search functionalities, one can easily find papers relative to the topics they’re interested in. Moreover, ScienceOpen’s convenient ‘Share’ tools enable users to share papers directly to their social media accounts. Thus, ScienceOpen’s interactive environment fosters the sharing and discussion of the conference proceedings which will continue long after the conference has concluded. Below are several particularly interesting titles that people are already talking about:

The aim of ICMB21 is to bring together academics and the research base working on any aspect of moisture induced damage on the built environment. If you haven’t already, you can register for ICMB21, taking place on June 28th and 29thhere

The ICMB21 topics include, but are not limited to: 

  • Monitoring & modelling of moisture in buildings 
  • Ventilation, airtightness & moisture in buildings 
  • Moisture in existing building & retrofit 
  • Flooding and escape of water 
  • Materials performance and building decay 
  • Indoor mould growth 
  • Moisture in historic/traditional buildings 
  • Financial, insurance & legal context & consequences of moisture in buildings 
  • Impact of moisture in buildings on health and wellbeing 
  • Moisture in buildings education 
  • Climate induced hazards facilitating moisture enrichment in buildings 

The planned Keynotes and Plenary Lectures are listed below:  

  • Dr Rachel Adams, University of California, Berkeley/California Department of Public Health – Measuring microbial growth in damp buildings: Ongoing efforts at an age-old public health problem 
  • Prof Jan Carmeliet, ETH Zürich, Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering – Multiscale unveil of moisture in buildings 
  • Prof John Grunewald, Technische Universität Dresden, Faculty of Architecture – Application of hygrothermal simulation in building renovation and regenerative heat supply 
  • Prof Hartwig Kunzel, Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics (IBP) – How moisture control standards should be updated to improve moisture tolerance and practical applicability 
  • Dr Peter Rickaby, UCL Institute of Environmental Design and Engineering (IEDE) & UKCMB – The Long Road to Quality-Assured, Moisture Safe Retrofit in the UK 
  • Prof Menghao Qin, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Department of Civil Engineering – Novel functional materials for energy-efficient indoor moisture control 
  • Prof Monika Woloszyn, Université Savoie Mont Blanc (USMB), Laboratoire LOCIE, Solar Academy – Effects of moisture on building energy performance: The difficult assessment 

The ICMB21 marks an important point in the recognition of the impact of moisture on the built environment, an independent line of inquiry with important implications for researchers, industry and policymakers. Working with ScienceOpen for this exciting event has been a pleasure, as it enabled its outcomes to reach wider communities easily, efficiently and without boundaries.
