This conference series was initiated in Sendai, Japan in 2000 and has played a significant role in the development of Energy and Environment of Residential Buildings. This is a well-attended conference attracting researchers, industry leaders and academics from Asia, Europe and North America. ICEERB 2018 will adopt an overarching theme of housing sustainability in urban areas.

The conference offers a programme that will not only facilitate exchange on exciting research and developments across a range of fields, but will also support and encourage dialogue with industry and government.

The five sub-themes of the conference are:

• Sustainable neighbourhoods
• Urban planning and regeneration
• Enhancing wellbeing through housing
• Indoor environment
• Energy in residential buildings
