Rankine 2020 to be held as a virtual conference

The IIR International Rankine 2020 Conference – Advances in Cooling, Heating and Power Generation will now be held from 27 to 31 July as a virtual event allowing even more delegates to take part in this unique and unprecedented event.

Using online technology, the event will include over 60 paper presentations, keynote lectures, short courses and online discussion groups in the Rankine Coffee Room. During the conference delegates will be able to attend the live presentation or choose to listen to the recordings of the presentations at a time to suit them. Delegates will also have the added value of being able to access the recordings of the presentations until the end of 2020.  In addition to the conference moving online, delegates will have access to a closed LinkedIn group allowing them to exchange ideas and connect prior, during and after Rankine 2020.

Talking about the conference, Dr Andy Pearson, Chairman of the Planning Committee said “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. Rankine 2020 is the first event to bring together the disciplines of RACHP and ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) and holding it as a virtual event will allow even more delegates to join, thus generating more innovative solutions to topical issues.”

This event will be a unique opportunity to be involved in exploring research and developments in the closely related fields of thermodynamic cycles, working fluids, and their applications to refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pumps and power generation, and their roles in moving the world forward into a future that delivers, heating, cooling and power in a way that is efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly.

The early bird registration fee, which is valid until 15 June 2020, starts from £120 + VAT and includes access to all live conference sessions, the online networking opportunities, the published conference proceedings and online access to the conference recordings until the end of 2020.
