Thermag VIII - International Conference on Caloric Cooling

Thermag VIII - International Conference on Caloric Cooling will be held in Darmstadt, Germany on 16.-20. September 2018. The conference provides a platform for scientists and engineers from all over the world working in the field of caloric materials and devices to get together and discuss their research and ideas.

The scope of the conference is extended beyond the magnetocaloric focus of former Thermag conferences and includes various forms of caloric cooling approaches as well as thermomagnetic energy conversion. By this, an enhanced exchange of knowledge between researchers working on the related forms of caloric materials and devices is promoted.

The topics include:

Magnetocaloric materials
Elastocaloric materials
Barocaloric materials
Electrocaloric materials
Caloric devices for room temperature cooling
Caloric applications at low temperatures
Thermomagnetic energy conversion
Resource basis and recycling of caloric materials
Standardisation and terminology of caloric materials

The workshop will be chaired by Prof. Oliver Gutfleisch, Technische Universität Darmstadt and Dr. Alexander Barcza, Vacuumschmelze and is organised in cooperation with the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR).

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
