Registration now available online at:

Registration is now open for “Sustainable Northern Shelter in a World of Diminishing Resources,” a forum addressing the challenge of empowering northern communities to build energy efficient, sustainable, culturally and geographically appropriate, healthy homes and communities. Sponsored by the Cold Climate Housing Research Center, University of Alaska Fairbanks, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, Canadian Mortgage Housing Corporation, Northern Forum, and the Fairbanks North Star Borough, the forum is being held on 28-30 October 2007 (deadline) in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Speakers and panelists include international leaders in the subjects of building science, architectural design, and energy systems. The desired outcome of the forum includes the identification of a research agenda for the field of northern building and infrastructure design and technology, development of on-going research partnerships, agreement on complementary and/or collaborative research topics, and the widespread dissemination of the information gathered. To allow for greater international attendance, the forum will be webcast live and open for both synchronous and asynchronous interaction.

…The current schedule of events and registration information is available For more information, please contact the Cold Climate Housing Research Center at: E-mail: info AT cchrc DOT org Phone: 907-457-3454

A webcast will be difficult for rural areas without broadband. I hope the papers and background info will be available earlier fro study.
