The 26th International Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics (ICCT-2023) will be held in Osaka, Japan, from 30 July to 4 August 2023. Originally the conference was to be organized for the 2022 summer after the predecessor in 2020, London. However, the worldwide COVID-19 crisis forced canceling the London conference, and shifting the Osaka conference to 2023. At present, the organizers plan to have this meeting on-site after five years interval from the last ICCT-2018 (USA).
This conference aims to share new research results and discuss their scientific meaning in Chemical Thermodynamics which is a fundamental science that analyzes the properties and chemical changes of materials by applying thermodynamic principles. Understanding materials properties, reactions, phase behaviors, and interaction of materials with environmental features in thermodynamic framework gives important bases for all areas in chemistry, and they are closely related to applied chemistry and chemical engineering. The results and knowledge of chemical thermodynamics are also used for industries based on material science. In recent years, research on heat conduction, thermoelectric effect, understanding of non-equilibrium in living organisms, and global warming and energy problems in the environment has made significant progress based on chemical thermodynamics. The 26th ICCT conference covers a wide range of these fields, such as the construction of fundamental theories, collection of various data, application of the data, establishment of methodologies, organic and inorganic materials, polymers, pharmaceuticals, foods, and environmental & safety problems.
ICCT-2023 should serve as an interdisciplinary platform and is open for all aspects of the chemical and physical behaviors of substances by virtue of the very nature of thermodynamics. Exciting presentations and inspired discussions of leading researchers and scholars in the fields of Chemical Thermodynamics will make that conference memorable.
