Festival dello Spazio

Si terrà a Busalla (GE), dal 3 al 5 aprile 2019, la seconda edizione del Festival dello Spazio Junior.

Parteciperà con un intervento dal titolo "Microgravità: il mondo senza peso della Stazione Spaziale Internazionale" il Dott. Libero Liggeri di ICMATE nel quale verrà presentata la ricerca del CNR-ICMATE di Genova sui fenomeni fisici in microgravità.

International School of Physics “Enrico Fermi” - Course 207: “Advances in Thermoelectricity: Foundational Issues, Materials, and Nanotechnology”

The Enrico Fermi Schools are a highly prestigious series of summer schools of the Italian Physical Society with a tradition of more than 60 years and with many Nobel laureates as lecturers (https://www.sif.it/attivita/scuola_fermi/).

The school "Advances in Thermoelectricity: Foundational Issues, Materials, and Nanotechnology” aims to provide students with a modern vision of the physics of thermoelectric phenomena.

Our colleague ICMATE dr. Carlo Fanciulli, is the Scientific Secretary of the School and will be a School Lecturer.

1st International Conference on Nanofluids (ICNf) and the 2nd European Symposium on Nanofluids (ESNf)

24th – 26th June 2019, Castellon (Spain)

www.icnf2019.com

These are a series of international conferences under the auspices of the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action - NANOUPTAKE (CA15119, www.nanouptake.eu). Focuses of ICNf 2019 include production and characterization of nanofluids and liquid-based nanocomposites, nanofluid-based heat transfer and storage of thermal energy, as well as industrial applications.

Dr. Simona Barison, ICMATE CNR, is a member of the Scientific Committee and will be glad to provide information on the Conference.

These are a series of international conferences under the auspices of the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action - NANOUPTAKE (CA15119, www.nanouptake.eu). Focuses of ICNf 2019 include production and characterization of nanofluids and liquid-based nanocomposites, nanofluid-based heat transfer and storage of thermal energy, as well as industrial applications.

Main topics include:

  • Nanofluid materials (nanoparticles, nanoPCM, nanofluids, nanosalts, etc.)
  • Nanofluid preparation and characterization methods, (stability, agglomeration, etc.)
  • Nanofluid properties (thermophysical, optical, and magnetic properties)
  • Heating, cooling, and refrigeration
  • Phase change based heat transfer (boiling, surface coating, heat pipes, etc.)
  • Storage of thermal energy
  • Solar energy applications (specific black nanofluids, volumetric solar collectors, etc.)
  • Numerical simulation on the microscopic and macroscopic levels
  • Industrial applications
  • Health, safety, and environmental issues

Dr. Simona Barison, ICMATE CNR, is a member of the Scientific Committee and will be glad to provide information on the Conference.
