TE group of University of Twente is hosting the first Eurotherm seminar on Caloric Heating and Cooling

Eurotherm seminar No. 115

The first Eurotherm seminar on Caloric Heating and Cooling (CHC) will be held at University of Twente on 13th-15th July 2020. This seminar will gather scientists and engineers to present the state of the art and the modern trends in caloric heating and cooling technologies and to foster an environment conducive to exchanging ideas. Theoretical, numerical and experimental approaches will be presented for development of Caloric Materials & Devices. CHC seminar will include Plenary lectures given by keynote speakers followed by contributed presentations.

The main topics of the seminar will be:

  • Fabrication and characterization of caloric Materials (Magnetocaloric, elastocaloric, Barocaloric and electrocaloric)
  • Synthesis and stability of magnetic fluids
  • Caloric Devices and applications for cooling and heating
  • Design and analysis of permanent and electro magnet assemblies
  • Fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics in magnetic regenerator
  • Caloric heat pumps
  • Caloric devices for electricity generation
  • Long term reliability issues in caloric devices
  • System level performance evaluation of caloric devices
  • Demonstrators & Prototypes
  • Life cycle analysis of caloric devices


  • Abstract submission – 29th February 2020
  • Notification to authors – 30th April 2020
  • Early birds registration – before 1st June 2020
