Vacuum insulation panels, the most advanced form of thermal insulation, have been known to enable buildings, transport equipment, and cold chain systems to achieve unprecedented levels of reduction in energy demand. The 16th edition of the International Vacuum Insulation Symposium (IVIS2023) offers an apt platform for global scientists, engineers, manufacturers, end-users, scientists, and policymakers to discuss the above and many more relevant topics. The symposium will include technical paper sessions, plenary lectures, and stakeholders’ meetings. We would like to welcome the global community to IVIS2023 to be held in College of Engineering, Anna University, Chennai (India) during 6th – 7th November 2023 and look forward to meeting with you there.
