ESAT 2020 - 31st European Symposium on Applied Thermodynamics

Paris, France - 25-28 October 2020

 New dates!
Considering the situation related to the COVID-19, in order  to allow all of you
to participate in the optimal health & safety conditions,
it has been decided to postpone ESAT2020 to October.

The organizing committee looks forward to seeing you there
and exchange views again 
within the framework 
our traditional symposium which is dear to us.


ESAT 2020 conference will be the 31st meeting in a series of applied thermodynamics conferences initiated in 1974 by Helmut Knapp.

The conference covers new experimental achievements, prediction of thermophysical properties of complex systems, molecular and statistical thermodynamics, molecular modeling and simulation and chemo-informatics, all of this in view of practical applications.
The recent efforts in the various fields have resulted in models, methods, tools, insights and data that contribute substantially to industrial research and process/product design and development.

The conference offers unique opportunities to gain a state of the art overview of the various topics and to create new scientific interactions and collaborations. A strong contribution from industry is expected through the IUT workshop.
In addition to plenary lectures, oral presentations in parallel sessions and poster sessions, we plan to propose:

>> pitches for young researchers,
>> the Helmut Knapp best poster award 
sponsored by the GDR CNRS Thermodynamique moléculaire et des procédés
>>  a round table discussion focused on a topic central to industry
>>   industrial stands.
