The IIR International Rankine 2020 Conference – Advances in Cooling, Heating and Power Generation, will be held from July 27–31 as a virtual event.
The conference celebrates the life and legacy of William Rankine (pictured above), the Scottish mechanical engineer who helped found the science of thermodynamics. This year the event will include more than 60 paper presentations, keynote lectures, short courses and online discussion groups.
During the conference, delegates can attend the live presentation or listen to the recordings of the presentations at a time to suit them – until the end of 2020.
Delegates will also have access to a closed LinkedIn group, allowing them to exchange ideas and connect prior, during and after Rankine 2020.
“We are living through unprecedented times and there’s never been a bigger need for novel ideas to overcome some of the current challenges we face,” says Dr Andy Pearson, chairman of the planning committee.
“Rankine 2020 is the first event to bring together the disciplines of RACHP (refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps) and ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle). Holding it as a virtual event will allow even more delegates to join, thus generating more innovative solutions to topical issues.”
