History of Conference
The first workshop was organized by prof. Stefan Barta on January 22, 1996 at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. The Termophysic's meetings have been established as periodical meetings of scientists working in the field of investigation of thermophysical properties of materials and the problems of heat transfer and measurement of thermophysical and other transport properties of materials.
The Thermophysics as the working group of the Slovak Physical Society was established on the meeting at the Department of Thermophysics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava on June 13, 1997. The aim of the constitution of the working group is to exchange actual information in the field of heat transfer phenomena.
Dr. L'udovít Kubičár acted as the coordinator of the group and organized meetings at the Institute of Physics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava in the years - 1997, 1998 and 1999.
Then Dr. Libor Vozár from Faculty of Natural Sciences at the Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra coordinated the activities of the society for the years 2000, 2001 and 2002. The workshops were organized in Nitra, in Račková dolina and Kočovce, respectively.
Next years, the Thermophysics workshop were held in Kočovce again. Dr. Peter Matiasovský, working for the Institute of Construction and Architecture at the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava, being the chairman of Thermophysical Society for the years 2003, 2004 and 2005 was taking the chair of the workshops.
The last three years the Thermophysics workshop were held in Kočovce again. Dr. Jozefa Lukovičova from research group at the Department of Physics of Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, was taking the chair of the workshops for the years 2006, 2007 and 2008.
In years 2009-2011, the Thermophysics workshop was held in Valtice. Dr. Oldrich Zmeskal (working at the Institute of Physical and Applied Chemistry at the Faculty of Chemistry of the Brno University of Technology in Brno) and Dr. Robert Cerny (working at the Department of Materials Engineering and Chemistry at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague) were taking the chairs of the workshops.
In years 2012-2014 the Thermophysics conference was held in Guesthouse Adam that is a three-star guesthouse set in the village of Podkylava. Guesthouse Adam is surrounded in picturesque hilly region covered with hamlets and caters to all groups' visitors and tourists. The guesthouse was built with the financial support of the European Union funds and has embarked its operation in May 2006. Vlastimil Bohac, SAS, Bratislava, Slovak Republic, in cooperation with previous organizers prof. Zmeskal and prof. Cerny took the chairmanship for this period.
Thermophysics 2015 will be organized by Thermophysical Laboratory in the Department of Physics at Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra, Slovakia, and will take place in the Hotel Janosik situated in a picturesque village of Terchova in northern Slovakia. The chairmanship was taken by Assoc. prof. Oldrich Zmeskal, UKF in Nitra, Slovak Republic, in cooperation with previous organizers prof. Zmeskal and prof. Cerny.
