UCL Open: Environment is opening a call for papers based on the 1st International Conference on Moisture in Buildings (ICMB21), which was held online on the 28th and 29th June 2021.

Moisture in buildings is a field of study with direct, tangible and wide-ranging implications on many areas including climate change mitigation/adaptation, built environment decarbonisation, and health and wellbeing. With the aim of bringing together and consolidating the unusually interdisciplinary research community around this topic, the ICMB21 was held on the 28th and 29th June as the very first event of a biannual conference series organised by the UK Centre for Moisture in Buildings (UKCMB): https://ukcmb.org.

This special series will collate the highest quality contributions from the ICMB21 in order to act as an archive of this focussed academic gathering. The whole conference programme and details of individual presentations can be found here.
