SCOPE AND BACKGROUND OF CONFERENCE

The heat and mass transfer community is involved in nearly all aspects of society since nearly all activities involve some form of heat or mass transfer.

Heat and mass transfer phenomena control energy production and utilization systems, many types of production lines, transportation systems and numerous daily activities for our modern lifestyles.

Thus, heat and mass transfer is a vitally important field where scientists and engineers face difficult challenges developing cutting-edge technologies for highly efficient energy systems, massive information/communication equipment, high-value-added manufacturing, and comfortable living environments, to name just a few.

The International Heat Transfer Conference (IHTC), nicknamed the “Heat Transfer Olympics,” is the world’s premier conference for scientists and engineers in the heat and mass transfer research community, who convene every four years to exchange the latest information. Previous conferences have greatly enhanced mutual exchanges of knowledge and experience, and nurtured new and/or interdisciplinary research areas.

The conferences are convened every four years to exchange the latest heat and mass transfer information. Previous conferences have greatly enhanced our exchanges of knowledge and experience and nurtured new and interdisciplinary research areas.

IHTC-17 will continue the increasingly important mission of fostering international cooperation and the exchange of ideas among colleagues to solve urgent problems and improve peoples’ lives in the years ahead.  Future conferences should realize an increasingly important mission: to foster international cooperation and facilitate the exchange of ideas among colleagues in order to solve urgent problems and improve peoples’ lives in the years ahead.

We invite forward-looking scientists, engineers, and researchers from all over the world to attend the 17th International Heat Transfer Conference (IHTC-17) in Cape Town, South Africa, which will be taking place 14 – 18 August 2023.

In addition to exploring traditional research areas, IHTC-17 will ask important questions about how we can better serve society and make this world a better place for all people. We face major issues such as ensuring sustainable development, healthy aging, sufficient food for all, and economic growth that need scientific and technological solutions.  To do this, we need to promote collaboration to develop new ideas with interdisciplinary teams developing new solutions for today’s problems.

We hope that IHTC-17, like its predecessors, will contribute to the broadening of the scope of the contributions made by the international community of thermal science professionals for the benefit and welfare of people all over the world

Organized by HEFAT

Under the auspices of The Assembly for International Heat Transfer Conferences. Supported by the South African Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the International Center for Heat and Mass Transfer and the American Society of Thermal and Fluids Engineers

IHTC-17 will provide participants with unique opportunities for exchanging new ideas and will facilitate extensive discussions throughout the conference.

We hope that IHTC-17 will magnify the contributions of the previous 16 meetings for the benefit of the international heat and mass transfer community and all people.

DESTINATION

IHTC 17 will be held in the iconic city of Cape Town

Cosmopolitan Cape Town is known as the Gateway to South Africa. Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, mountains – from sheer cliffs which rise from the oceans to valley upon valley separated by craggy peaks, forests, beaches, winelands and wheatlands.

Cape Town shares a time zone with Europe making it ideal for travelers not wishing to be encumbered by jetlag.
