Cryogenics, Heat & Mass Transfer at Low Temperatures

We are pleased to announce the 2nd ICCRT 2018 conference, aimed at academics, researchers, and industry representatives alike, and dedicated to “Cryogenics, Heat & Mass Transfer at Low Temperatures”. In addition to topics included in the successful, 1st ICCRT of 2016, workshops and lectures offered in ICCRT 2018 will cover the emergent field of 3-D printing technologies in cryogenics and low temperatures, and the use of cryogenics in medicine for surgery and cryopreservation.

This ICCRT 2018 event is a product of extensive collaboration and combined expertise in the aforementioned areas, and represents a joint effort of the following institutions:

Venue: Hotel Capitol, 29 Calea Victoriei street, sect 1, 010061 Bucharest, Romania; Click here for details

Past Conference, ICCRT 2016.


The Organizing Committee ICCRT 2018 invites companies and institutions to showcase and promote their products and equipment in the conference areas (conference halls, lobby, etc.). The aim of the exhibition is to present and inform the professional community of new products used in the fields of cryogenics and refrigeration. The exhibition area will serve as an opportunity for designers, manufacturers, scientists and company representatives, to meet with each other and to exchange up to date information that will lead to advances in the field.


The Organizing Committee ICCRT 2018 encourages companies and institutions to participate as Sponsors (starting amount 2.000 €). Sponsors benefits will be prorated to the contribution and will include the following:

  • Sponsors’ company names (or its logo) will be printed on Conference webpage, promotional materials, handbook, program
  • Sponsors will be entitled to an exhibition area
  • A delegation of 2 persons from the sponsor’s company will be entitled to participate at the Conference Sessions and Workshops and dinner receptions.
In addition to covering expenses, the sponsor’s contribution will be used to support the mission of the Refrigeration and Cryogenics Romanian Association, which is raising funds for educational activities in the fields of cryogenics and refrigeration, at all academic level.
