It is a pleasure to host the 5th International Conference on Cold
Climate – Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning.
The principal objective of Cold Climate HVAC 2006 is to provide
key elements of a strategy by which scientists, designers, engineers,
manufacturers and other decisionmakers can achieve a good
balance between energy use in buildings and indoor environmental
quality (IEQ), while conserving precious resources and energy,
as well as prevent the environment from further deterioration, with
emphasis especially on cold climatic regions. The strategy for the
development of architecture and building construction in the 21st
century is based on the following precepts:
Architecture and building construction in the 21st century
enters a completely new stage in history, where the development
of sustainable buildings is a reflection of the global problems
encountered in society since the middle of the 20th century.
The goal is to reduce the risk of poor IEQ and waste of energy by
promoting a synthesis between the technical, architectural,
economic and social sciences.
- application of technologies that use nonconventional renewable
- the selection of energy conservation technologies where the
technical decisions simultaneously promote improvement of the
- building on the basis of an integrated energy-ecology system,
where all elements such as the envelope, heating, ventilating,
air-conditioning systems, heat and power supply as well as the
environment are interconnected.
The Scandinavian Federation of Heating, Ventilation and Sanitary
Engineering Associations (SCANVAC) initiated the series of Cold
Climate HVAC Conferences. The four previous conferences have
been successfully organized in Rovaniemi, Finland in 1994,
Reykjavik, Iceland in 1997, Sapporo, Japan in 2000, and
Trondheim, Norway in 2003.
We now invite you to Russia in 2006. The built-up area in the
northern climatic zone covers about 48 % of the territory
of Russia. Russian specialists have thus gained wide experience
in the construction of buildings in permafrost areas, with the
characteristic changes of temperature and air humidity, the
influence of wind as well as of the landscape.
On behalf of the Russian organizers, it is my pleasure to welcome you
to the 5th International Conference on Cold Climate HVAC in Moscow.
The particularity of the 5th International Conference Cold Climate
HVAC 2006 is that this event is held at the same time and under
the same roof with the 10th International Trade Fair for Sanitation,
Heating Air-Conditioning, Building Automation SHK MOSCOW
2006 (May 22–25) leading trade fair on HVAC in Russia which
300 exhibitors from 20 countries. Participants of the Conference
will have a free paths ticket to the Trade Fair SHK.
After the Conference, we invite you to a fascinating one-day trip to
Saint-Petersburg, a city that is regarded as one of the most beautiful
in the world.
Beside the conference you and your spouse can explore
the beautiful views of Moscow and suburbs. Enjoy the future of building technologies - mark the dates in your agenda!
