Calls for hosting the annual European Conference on Thermoelectrics ECT
The European Thermoelectric Society ETS solicit organizations from the European region interested in hosting its annual European Conference on Thermoelectrics ECT.
ECT is considered the most important European annual meeting for scientists, engineers, and industry in the field of thermoelectric research, development of new materials and applications in power generation, refrigeration, thermal management, and sensing equipment. The international prestige of this conference has continued to grow over the years with attendance at our most recent meetings typically exceeding 300 attendees. It is expected that the proposing organization is recognized in the field of thermoelectricity or have strong connections with well-known thermoelectric groups. Calls for the organization of ECT conferences are announced each year at the ECT conferences. The selection of the hosting site will take place during the ECT conference by the ETS board members.
