Abstract
This paper aims to present the methodology for the development of a Decision Support System (DSS) that takes into account environmental and socioeconomic criteria, focusing on a case study that was carried out in Athens. The experimental campaign that was performed at city, neighbourhood and building scale and its main results are described. In addition, the results of the Communities of Practice that were organised are reported. A short description of the development of an ANN model for heat island prediction is given. Finally, the three different planning alternatives that were proposed and evaluated by the developed DSS are analysed.
