Boulder CO, USA?? –?? The Nineteenth Symposium of the well-established series of conferences on thermophysical properties will be held in Boulder CO, USA 21-26 June 2015.

The Symposium is concerned with theoretical, experimental, simulation, and applied aspects of the thermophysical properties of gases, liquids, and solids, including biological systems.

The content of the abstracts will be the basis for acceptance of papers for presentation at the Symposium. Refer to the website for the most recent information.

The abstracts must be submitted through the Symposium web page at

Appropriate topics are:

  • Thermodynamic Properties, including equation of state, phase equilibria, p-V-T behavior, heat capacity, enthalpy, thermal expansion, sound speed, and critical phenomena.
  • Transport Properties, including thermal and electrical conductivity, viscosity, mass diffusion, thermal diffusion, non-Newtonian behavior, and thermal, thermoacoustic, and other diffusion waves.
  • Optical and Thermal Radiative Properties, including dielectric constant, refractive index, emissivity, reflectivity, and absorptivity.
  • Interfacial Properties, including solid-solid interfaces, surface tension, interfacial profiles, interfacial transport, and wetting.
  • Data Correlation, including data evaluation and prediction, standard reference data, databases, and storage and retrieval of thermophysical-property data.
