On behalf of the organizers of the 2019 Cryogenic Engineering Conference and International Cryogenic Materials Conference, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 22nd joint CEC/ICMC in Hartford, Connecticut: Connecticut’s capital and one of New England’s oldest cities.
The technical program of the conferences features the latest research and state-of-the-art developments in all cryogenics areas, including superconductivity, cryocoolers, cryogenic materials, and applications. Hartford provides an inspiring environment for lively discussions, shared experiences, and collaboration development.
The Cryogenic Engineering Conference and the International Cryogenic Materials Conference (CEC-ICMC) are the premier international conferences for discussion and presentation of research pertaining to the production and application of low temperatures.
The Cryogenic Engineering Conference (CEC) focuses on the science and engineering required for cryogenic applications. Examples of topics in past conferences include liquefied gases for fuels, space applications of cryogenic liquids, cooling and performance of superconducting magnet systems in medical, transportation, power, and basic research applications, as well as the systems, machinery, control technology and thermodynamics required to produce low temperatures.
The International Cryogenic Materials Conference (ICMC) focuses on the development, characterization, fabrication and optimization of the materials used in cryogenic applications. This is typically broken into two broad categories: structural materials and superconducting materials. ICMC contributions cover both high and low temperature superconducting materials, from basic materials research through behavior of composite cables and wires in applications. Cryogenic structural materials cover a broad range, including non-metallic composites, polymeric resins and insulation materials, ferrous alloys, nickel-base alloys, aluminum alloys, and specialized materials for advanced cryocooler applications.
Every other year, these two conferences join together to form the CEC-ICMC Joint Conference.
Please mark your calendars and plan to join us at CEC/ICMC 2019. We hope to see you there.
