Abstract Submission :-
Whilst we have received dozens of abstracts for the upcoming International Vacuum Insulation Symposium (IVIS) 2023, we have been approached by several researchers and industry professionals to allow them extra time to submit abstracts.
In this regard, we are pleased to inform you that the organising committee has decided to extend the deadline for abstract submission to 30th April 2023.
You must submit your abstract (200 – 400 words in .pdf format) by the new deadline 30th April 2023 via email to email@example.com reporting new research outputs covering one or more of the below listed topics. Your abstract should clearly state the objectives of the research covered, methodology, main results (expected or achieved) and impact (likely or achieved). Based on the content and quality of your abstract, as assessed by a committee of reviewers, authors will be asked to submit a full-length paper for oral or poster presentation during the symposium. Poster presentation and an exhibition of insulation related products, equipment, sensors and literature will be organised during the conference.
You are welcome to participate as a non-presenting delegate as well.
Symposium Topics (this is not an exhaustive list; any submissions covering aspects of advanced insulation not listed here are welcome):
- Material and insulation system characterization (microstructure, thermal characteristics, internal pressure, air permeability, gas diffusion, ad/desorption)
- Heat, air and moisture transfer (from material to building, industrial product and process scale)
- Ageing(theory and practical aspects)
- Envelope(material, barrier performance, thermal bridging)
- Core materials and additives(porous silica, fibers, foams, aerogel, perlites, opacifiers, getters, desiccants)
- Life cycle assessment
- Applications: buildings, cold chain equipment, cryogenics, transportation(cars, trains, shipping, reefer trucks), medical devices, low temperature storage (food, vaccine), high temperature storage (solar power plants, domestic and industrial storage)
- Assessment of performance and standardization
- Smart materials for insulation systems
- New materials and manufacturing methods for insulation systems
