SHC 2012 was a successful start of the IEA SHC Programme's new series of international conferences on solar heating and cooling for buildings and industry.
We were happy to welcome 220 participants from 31 countries in San Francisco. The conference program consisted of a total of 120 presentations, including 16 keynote lectures and the launch of the IEA roadmap on Solar Heating and Cooling. About 90 scientific posters were continuously displayed throughout the conference.
We would like to thank all authors for their high quality contributions. Also many thanks to the scientific committee for their dedicated support with the reviewing procedure.
All three days of the conference we enjoyed vivid discussions and networking oportunities during lunches, coffee breaks and at the very nice conference dinner.
An interesting techical tour complemented the program the day after the conference.
With this successful initiation we very much look forward to the next conference:
SHC 2013 will take place in Freiburg, Germany on September 23-25, 2013. We look forward to seeing you there!
