International Conference on Organic and Hybrid Thermeoelctrics (ICOT2018)

The International Conference on Organic and Hybrid Thermeoelctrics will be held January 29 - February 1, 2018 in Valencia / Spain. Organizers are Andrés Cantarero (University of Valencia) and Xavier Crispin (University of Linköping).

The conference is dedicated to the scientific exchange on organic and hybrid thermoelectrics aiming to strengthen their competitive position. Topics include molecules and compounds, composite materials, ionic thermoelectrics, thermogalvanic cells, metrology, theory, and application. The scientific program will consist of oral and poster sessions. "Early bird" registration is possible until November 30, 2017.

The list of plenary and invited speakers includes some of the major world experts in polymeric thermoelectrics:

Plenary Speakers

  • Michael CHABINYC, University of California, Santa Barbara / USA
  • Jaime GRUNDLAND, Texas A&M University, College Station / USA

16th European Conference on Thermoelectrics / 37th International Conference on Thermoelectrics (ICT/ECT2018)

The ICT/ECT2018 will be held July 1-5, 2017 in Caen / France.

The international conferences on thermoelectrics provide a global forum for presentations and information exchange on the latest emerging thermoelectric technology. This conference series began in 1976 in Arlington, Texas, USA. Since 1988, the ICT has been held in various countries, since the international thermoelectric society typically holds a three-year rotation for conference sites between Europe, Asia and the Americas, where most of the activities in thermoelectrics research are located. In 2018, it will coincide with the European Conference on Thermoelectrics, the biggest event on this subject in Europe, a high quality scientific forum promoted by the European Thermoelctric Society. Both offer open and informal disscussions on thermoelectrics covering als aspects from materials design through synthesis and characterization to application, modules and simulations.
