The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), an intergovernmental organization and a forum for exchange of scientific and industrial know-how, will be hosting the first international conference on the cold chain. The Conference will be supported by relevant IIR commissions will take place on 29th, 30th and 31st March 2010 in Cambridge, UK.
The conference, which will attract an international audience of researchers and industrialists, will bring together those with an interest in the cold chain, covering food, pharmaceuticals and other applications to explore the latest developments and key trends in technology.
The programme will include over 60 papers presented over a full two days timetable. Short courses will be offered as workshops with likely themes such as mathematical modelling, temperature control methods, energy and the cold chain, energy and sustainability in manufacturing and a review of alternative technologies.
The second element of the Cambridge Conference will be hosted in association with SIRAC and will focus on Sustainability, and will run as a parallel programme over the same dates.
