Event Name

Micro & Nanoscale Phase Change Heat Transfer. Gordon Research Conference

Start Date 11th Jan 2015
End Date 16th Jan 2015
Description The new Gordon Conference (GRC) on "Micro and Nanoscale Phase Change Heat Transfer" will create a new forum to discuss and share recent fundamental advancements in micro and nanoscale phase change processes. In particular, with the recent developments in micro and nanoengineered surfaces, significant efforts have focused on using such structures for boiling, evaporation, and condensation. It is now evident that these structures on surfaces hold great promise to advance liquid-vapor phase change and are key to enable the development of thermal management, energy conversion, and water desalination systems, among others. Accordingly, there has been a significant increase in research efforts in these areas with a notable rise in work reported in recent conferences and journal papers. Yet, new questions and challenges have emerged towards understanding the complexities in phase-change heat transfer with the incorporation of micro and nanostructures due to the interdisciplinary nature of this area. Despite the strong expertise of many researchers, a forum is currently lacking to bring these experts together and have the collective discussions needed to provide the mechanistic insights to ultimately harness these processes and make fundamental breakthroughs.
