Thermophysics 2024

9th October - 11th October 2024
Czech Republic

This conference will be the 29th in a series of well-established meetings that have been held since 1996. Its chairmanship changes every three years, and in the period 2024 - 2025 is organized by the by the Department of Materials Engineering and Chemistry, Faculty of Civil Engineering of Czech Technical University (FCE CTU)

The co-organizers of the conference are the
- Department of Inorganic Chemistry, Faculty of Chemical Technology of University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague (FCH UCT)
- Institute of Physical and Applied Chemistry, Faculty of Chemistry of Brno University of Technology (FCH BUT)

In 2024 the conference will take place in the Dalesice Brewery situated in south Moravia.

The conference includes invited lectures, oral presentations, and discussions on specialized topics.
The objective of the conference is to discuss the results of academic and industrial research, and exchange invaluable experiences in the field of thermo-physical properties of materials. It usually hosts about 40 participants from various countries, especially Slovakia, Czech Republic, and Poland, but also from Austria, Sweden, Germany, Japan, France, Turkey, Canada, Israel, Kazakhstan or India.

Invited Lectures
Prof. Dr. Ing. David Sedmidubsky (UCT Prague)
Prof. Ing. Vlcek Jozef, Ph.D. (Technical University of Ostrava)
Ing. Vlastimil Bohac, CSc. (Slovak Academy of Sciences)

Venue and accommodation
The Brewery Dalesice is the well-known brewery in the Czech Republic. It is known from the Czechoslovak comedy directed by Jiri Menzel Cutting It Short (also released as Shortcuts, in Czech: Postriziny). It is based on the novel Postriziny of the Czech writer Bohumil Hrabal. The story is set in a brewery in a small Czech town. Each year, numerous international congresses, symposiums, and meetings with the international attendance organized by the Czech scientific and industry institutions take place here.
