1st International IIR
Conference of Cryogenics and Refrigeration Technology

Bucharest, June 22-25, 2016

The "Cryogenics and Refrigeration Technology" conference is held under the auspice of the International Institute of Refrigeration for the first time in Romania. It represents a statement of innovative ideas gathered within a challenging field that is constantly developing itself.

This new conference offers attendees the possibility to discuss research ideas and exchange knowledge and practices based on the participants’ experience in Cryogenic and Refrigeration technologies and the applicability of these topics within several industrial sectors, such as: Air Separation Units, Helium Recovery and Liquefaction Plants or Industrial Heat Transfer Processes.

Furthermore, the ICCRT 2016 in Bucharest aims to be a place where students, academics and researchers have the opportunity to get together and discuss important technical issues in the cryogenics and refrigeration areas, for the benefit of all attendees.

Venue: Hotel Capitol, 29 Calea Victoriei street, sect 1, 010061 Bucharest, Romania; www.hotelcapitol.ro.

Accommodation (not included in the conference fee).
We recommend that you book one of the following hotels, which have granted special prices for the participants:
