ICR 2019 receives support from key players

As a world-leading event for research and industry covering all refrigeration technologies and applications in the HVACR sector (including cryogenics), the International Congress of Refrigeration (ICR) 2019 is set to welcome its largest audience to date.

From 24-30 August 2019, Montreal, Canada will host the 25th ICR of the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR).

With over 900 technical presentations expected, plenary speaker Gaétan Lantagne, director of strategic and cross-functional projects at Hydro-Québec Research Institute, will launch the congress technical programme which will include 16 keynote presentations, 10 industry focused workshops, 10 IIR Working Group meetings, four IIR collaborative-Commission meetings, four technical tours and numerous social events.

A selection of scientific awards and prizes, including the IIR Best Student Paper Competition, will also be presented during the congress allowing the IIR to pay tribute to those who have made a noteworthy contribution to the scientific community over the past few years.

Open to students up to masters level, the IIR Best Student Paper Competition will be an opportunity to bring to the limelight the work achieved by today’s future talents and will also help to emphasise the importance mentoring and role models can have in the HVACR sector.

The 25th Congress in the series has already received backing from national establishments such as Canada GeoExchange Coalition, Fonds de recherche du Québec and Hydro-Québec Research Institute.

Key international players including ASHRAE, Cemafroid, Frascold, Honeywell, IEA Heat Pump Centre, REHVA and Shecco have also confirmed their support of the event.
