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


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.
