8th European conference on thermoelectrics  

The European thermoelectric conference (Ect) is promoted by the European thermoelectric society for favouring the dissemination in Europe of the scientific and technical progresses of thermoelectrics, enhancing the communication between research institutions and industries for promotion of applications of thermoelectrics, providing a forum for exchange of information and achievements.

The 2010 edition is organized by Cnr- Institute for energetics and interphases (Ieni), unit of Lecco and will take place in Como, September 23-24. Experts, scientists and engineers from research and industry all around Europe and abroad will attend the conference and discuss the state-of-the-art of the technology, latest advances in material research, device design and market opportunities.

The conference highlights fundamentals of thermoelectricity, development of new thermoelectric materials, devices processing and their forefront applications in electrical generation and cooling, ranging from macro to nano scales.

The symposium will consist of invited and contributed papers during plenary, oral and poster sessions. The topics cover a wide range of scientific research that often bridges the gap between basic science and various applications of thermoelectricity. Papers are solicited from the following topics: theoretical concepts in thermoelectricity and basic approaches new or improved thermoelectric materials, thermoelectricity at a reduced scale, new developments in measurement techniques and preparation methods, novel approaches to thermoelectricity, applications in thermoelectric refrigeration and electrical current generation.
