We are glad to announce that Prof. Giuseppe Cannistraro, Prof. Sergio Nardini, Prof. Carla Balocco, and Prof. Marilena De Simone will lead the editorial board of Journal of Buildings Climate Control (JBCC), an open access journal of Acadlore. Prof. Giuseppe Cannistraro and Prof. Sergio Nardini will serve as editors-in-chief, while Prof. Carla Balocco, and Prof. Marilena De Simone will work as associate editors.
Since 2022, Prof. Giuseppe Cannistraro has been serving as Full Professor of Environmental Technical Physics at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Messina. He is Member of the Italian Thermotechnical Association (A.T.I.)., of the Environmental Acoustics Group (G.A.A.) of the Italian Acoustics Association (A.I.A.) and of the Italian Society of Ergonomics, as well as Member of the "MICROCLIMA" working group of the Ergonomics Commission of UNI "National Unification Body". Prof. Giuseppe Cannistraro has collaborated with national and international research institutes and has been the owner of research projects concerning the plant engineering sector, funded by the Ministry of P.I. and Scientific Research. During his scientific activity, he has paid particular interest to the broad issues of human well-being within the built environment. He tackled the problem of well-being in its various aspects: building-system integration, climatology, heat transmission, radiative exchanges, all with a view to identifying the parameters that affect internal comfort. The aforementioned activity has led to the publication of about 150 original scientific papers published in international and national journals and presented at international and national congresses. He is also referee of numerous international scientific journals.
Prof. Sergio Nardini is full Professor at the Department of Engineering, University of Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli”. He obtained his PhD in Engineering of Thermomechanical Systems on 25 July 1994. He is professor in heat transfer, thermal systems for buildings, air conditioning in buildings, energy efficiency in buildings. prof. Sergio Nardini carries out research activities mainly in the field of heat transfer and energy efficiency in buildings, including but not limited to thermal conduction, natural and mixed convection in partially open cavities, analysis of active and passive solar systems, enhancement in heat transfer, characterization and use of nanofluids in heat transfer, thermal energy storage systems, forecast of national electricity consumption, heat transfer in transport, life cycle assessment for thermal components and systems.
Prof. Carla Balocco is associate professor of Environmental Technical Physics at Department of Architecture DIDA, Universita degli Studi di Firenze. She received the PhD in Energy Engineering on October 26, 1995, with an excellent judgement by the Commission. Her research interests mainly lie in building plant thermo physics, energy sustainability, indoor air quality, solar radiation control, well-being and human health. She has authored 108 publications on international open access journals and international scientific journals. Since 2006, Prof. Carla Balocco has lectured 10 academic courses or modules, participated at numerous national and international congresses, and supervised and guided doctoral theses in engineering and architecture facilities. She received the research award for the International Workshop Light in Museum - Necessity and Threat at the Wawel Royal Castle, Conference Center in Krakow, and the research award of AICARR Sanguineti 2014, for the research "Conditioning using dehumidifying rotors.
Prof. Marilena De Simone is Doctor in Environmental Engineering (December 2001) and earned the Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Calabria (February 2006). She currently works as Associate Professor in Environmental Applied Physics at the Department of Environmental Engineering of the University of Calabria, Italy. She is coauthor of more than 100 scientific publications published in national and international journals, books, and conference proceedings on the following topics: building physics, comfort and indoor environmental quality, passive and active solar systems, green roofs, energy storage materials, occupants’ behavior and energy efficiency of buildings. She worked in National and International research projects on sustainability and innovative technical solutions in the buildings sector.
Journal of Buildings Climate Control (JBCC) is a fully refereed international open access journal devoted to reporting the cutting-edge control technologies of indoor and outdoor buildings comfort and their applications in the real world. The mission of JBCC is to enable researchers, engineers, and technicians to share, learn, and implement the best practices that improve the occupant comfort of buildings. The journal welcomes original submissions in various forms, including reviews, regular research papers, and short communications as well as Special Issues on particular topics. The journal is particularly interested in original research and papers that disclose and bridge the relevant gaps in existing research.
