The International Institute of Refrigeration’s International Conference on Sustainability and the Cold Chain will take place at St Mary’s University College, Twickenham next June.
The Institute of Refrigeration is hosting the third in the series of conferences, which it says will attract an international audience of researchers and industrialists to the UK, and provide an opportunity to showcase leading edge developments.
The programme will feature 60 technical papers presented across two days. The conference will begin with a reception on the 23rd June and continue on the 24th and 25th June.
The conference programmes will feature two themes:
The Cold Chain will bring together those with an interest in the cold chain, covering food, transport and other applications to explore new developments and key trends in technology.
Sustainability in Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps will focus on environmental issues and innovation. Topics will include the integration of heating and cooling, refrigeration containment, renewable energy in the cold chain and carbon foot-printing. The event will be held in association with the IOR’s SIRACH (Sustainability in Refrigeration Air Conditioning and Heat Pump) technology network.
Judith Evans, Chairman of the Conference Planning Group said: “This is an excellent opportunity to put the UK more firmly on the international map and develop a better understanding of the work that is taking place in these two very important sectors. The UK hosted the first event in this series in 2010 in Cambridge which was overwhelmingly successful with over 150 people taking part.”
A formal call for authors of papers is now being issued. The organisers would particularly welcome applications for papers to be presented which showcase UK and international innovation in the cold chain, and practical case studies of how sustainable refrigeration technology is being introduced. Full details of the call for papers and guidelines for authors are available at www.iccc2014.com
Abstracts should be submitted by 1st November 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
