The conference has taken place!
The following is the best comment we
received from one of the invited
This is just a quick note to again thank you for organizing such an exciting and productive conference. I learned a tremendous amount about the current state of thermodynamics research. It was an honor for me to participate, and very useful for me in terms of contacts for the future.
I am a complete convert to your idea of short presentations followed by extended discussions. You made an excellent selection of highly diverse experts in a broad range of fields. I can honestly say it is the best conference I have attended.
We thank all Participants, the
Sponsor, and all members of the Scientific and Organizing Committees for making this scientific event successful and hopefully memorable for the
international thermodynamics community.

The 12th Joint European Thermodynamics
Conference will be held in Brescia, Italy, July 1-5, 2013. In view of the long standing tradition of European excellence in all facets of Thermodynamics, this will be a truly international event, attended by researchers from all continents.
Instead of keynote lectures, the conference will feature twelve
panel discussions (mini-symposia) in which
invited experts in each topic will briefly outline the essential points of their personal views with the objective of clarifying the state of the art, especially for the benefit of the young researchers attending the conference. Each panel discussion will have up to 9 invited experts and will last up to
150 minutes. Each panelist will speak 11-12 minutes and write a 6-10 page
paper or at least an extended abstract that will be published in the
Proceedings of the conference. Each panel discussion will allow time for 20-25 minutes of discussion (i.e., questions and answers and possibly short statements from the audience). View
here the list of invited panelist who accepted to participate.
other oral presentations during the conference will be by a selection of PhD students and
first-year PostDocs (see below).
The remaining papers will be discussed in various poster sessions.
The Conference is designed to be an opportunity for exchange
and discussion on research findings, advances, experiences, and activities carried
out both in academia and in industrial research centers in the various
fields of thermodynamics. Researchers and experts are therefore
invited to bring original contributions about their experimental and/or

are welcome to submit multiple papers, however, only one paper
(exceptionally two papers) per registered author will be accepted and
included in the proceedings, and at most one oral presentation will be
granted per PhD
student or PostDoc.
Brescia is a city of art near the
beautiful lake Garda and the Franciacorta wine region. It is famous for
its historical buildings, museums and special exhibitions, and an
extremely active industrial network.
