7 - 9 November 2018 Smolenice, Slovakia


23nd meeting of THERMOPHYSICS

About the conference

THERMOPHYSICS is a well-established international conference that has been held since 1996. In 2017 its 22nd meeting will be held in conjunction with the 4th meeting of the conference ENERGY & RESPONSIBILITY.

The conference will include invited lectures, oral presentations, and discussions on specialized topics. The objective of the conference is to discuss the results of academic and industrial research and exchange invaluable experiences in the field of thermophysical properties and energy technology. In addition to participants from Central Europe, it has also hosted participants from Sweden, France, Japan, Turkey, or India.

In 2017 the conference proceedings will be published again in the AIP Conference Proceedings Series (published by the American Institute of Physics Publishing LLC). The AIP conference proceedings are indexed by the Web of Science and Scopus databases.

The conferences are organized by the Department of Physics, Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra, Slovakia, and Faculty of Energy Technology, University of Maribor, Slovenia. The co-organizers are the Department of Materials Engineering and Chemistry, Czech Technical University in Prague and the Institute of Physical and Applied Chemistry, Brno University of Technology in Brno, both in the Czech Republic.

All sessions will be held at the Hotel Diery situated in a picturesque village of Terchova in northeastern Slovakia neighbored by Mala Fatra National Park.

Conference history

The first meeting of THERMOPHYSICS was organized by Prof. Stefan Barta on January 22, 1996 at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. Subsequently, the meetings were held periodically, aiming at scientists working in the field of investigation of thermophysical properties of materials and the problems of heat transfer and measurement of thermophysical and other transport properties of materials. The conference organizers and venues were changed every three years as follows.
