The Cryogenic Engineering Conference and the International Cryogenic Materials Conference (CEC-ICMC) are the premier international conferences for discussion and presentation of research pertaining to the production and application of low temperatures. The Cryogenic Engineering Conference (CEC) focuses on the science and engineering required for cryogenic applications. Examples of topics in past conferences include liquefied gases for fuels, space applications of cryogenic liquids, cooling and performance of superconducting magnet systems in medical, transportation, power, and basic research applications, as well as the systems, machinery, control technology and thermodynamics required to produce low temperatures. The International Cryogenic Materials Conference (ICMC) focuses on the development, characterization, fabrication and optimization of the materials used in cryogenic applications. This is typically broken into two broad categories: structural materials and superconducting materials. ICMC contributions cover both high and low temperature superconducting materials, from basic materials research through behavior of composite cables and wires in applications. Cryogenic structural materials cover a broad range, including non-metallic composites, polymeric resins and insulation materials, ferrous alloys, nickel-base alloys, aluminum alloys, and specialized materials for advanced cryocooler applications. Every other year, these two conferences join together to form the CEC-ICMC Joint Conference. Presenting from STI will be Ken Pfeiffer, VP Engineering.https://www.cec-icmc.org/
EUCAS 2019 in Glasgow is the 14th European Conference on applied Superconductivity. Held from September 1 to 5, this edition of EUCAS would include social events, short courses, satellite meetings and abstract submissions aimed to bring together people, who are working in various fields of applied superconductivity, from across the world. Planned to present from STI is Dr. Jeong Huh- The Conductus® HTS wire program technical lead.http://www.eucas2019.org/
The International Symposium on Superconductivity (ISS2019), organized by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), will welcome over 450 scientists, engineers, students, corporate executives and other participants from over 20 global regions. Since the discovery of copper-oxide-based high-temperature superconductors in 1988, the ISS has hosted annual symposiums to promote superconducting technologies.
Founded in 2016, the AIST is operating a research consortium on superconductivity “the Applied Superconductivity Constellations of Tsukuba (ASCOT). Composed of 20 private companies and 9 national universities/institutes, including AIST, ASCOT aims to develop superconducting technologies into practical products and systems applicable in society as well as foster young researchers who may contribute to the future of this technology.https://iss2019.jp/
