Gustav Lorentzen Conference Extends Abstract-Submission Deadline to Feb. 15

The deadline for submitting abstracts for the upcoming 14th IIR-Gustav Lorentzen Conference on Natural Refrigerants event has been extended to February 15. (The previous deadline was January 20.)

The conference, named after Norwegian CO2 refrigeration pioneer Gustav Lorentzen, is a biennial gathering of the world’s leading researchers in the field of natural working fluids for the refrigeration, heating and cooling sectors. This year the event will be held from December 6-9 at the Kyoto International Conference Center and Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan.

The  event, organized by the Japan Society of Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers, is inviting all researchers to submit their contributions and join the discussion on the latest progress in the area of natural refrigerants. “The conference welcomes research subjects covering fundamental studies (such as thermodynamic properties or heat and mass transfer), system developments (such as in heat pumps, chillers or refrigerators), and their applications,” the official event website states.

The conference chair, Professor Kiyoshi Saito of Waseda University recently spoke with Accelerate Magazine about the conference and his view on the latest progress with natural refrigerants. Read about it here.

The 13th IIR-Gustav Lorentzen Conference on Natural Refrigerants event was held in Valencia, Spain in June 2018 and attracted more than 250 experts from all over the world.
