After the successfull conference in Karlsruhe in 2016, the International Institute of Refrigeration and the NSERC chair on industrial energy efficiency established at Université de Sherbrooke and supported by Laboratoire des Technologies de l'Energie (Hydro-Québec) and CanmetEnergy-Varennes (Natural Resources Canada) invite you to the 12th IIR Conference on Phase Change Materials and Slurries for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (PCM 2018) to be held in Orford, Québec, Canada, between the 21st and 23rd of May 2018.

The scope of the conference is to highlight the novel technologies using Phase Change Materials (PCMs) and Slurries (ice or hydrate slurries...). The relevant topics are as follows:
- Thermophysical and rheological properties of Phase-Change Materials (PCMs) and Slurries
- Materials Science and innovation of PCMs and Slurries
- Novel and optimised PCMs and Slurries for refrigeration and air conditioning applications
- Transport phenomena and time-dependent behaviour of PCMs and Slurries
- Numerical and experimental methods dedicated to PCMs and Slurries
- Innovative and improved equipment and logistics for generation, handling, distribution and employment of PCMs and Slurries
- Renewable heating and cooling by using PCMs and Slurries
- Thermal energy storage and energy savings via PCMs and Slurries
- Industrial (food, transport...) and building applications of PCMs and Slurries
- Sustainability impact of refrigeration and air conditioning technologies involving PCMs and Slurries
