18 – 21 May, 2017, Bucharest, Romania
The European Symposium on Applied Thermodynamics (ESATB) was founded in 1974 by Professor Helmut Knapp in order to bring together researchers from academia and industry from all over the world.
The ESAT2017 conference aims to cover new experimental achievements, prediction of thermophysical properties of complex systems, molecular and statistical thermodynamics, molecular modeling and simulation. The conference offers the opportunity to present state-of-the-art research on various topics and aims to generate fruitful scientific discussions and collaborations. Plenary lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions will make sure that this interaction is made. The ESAT conference is organized in cooperation with the Working Party on Thermodynamics and Transport Properties: the EFCE Excellence award will be granted on that occasion to an young researcher who has contributed significantly to the field.
A special session will be hosted on Teaching Thermodynamics.
