About IHMTC-2023 @ IIT Patna

Conference Brochure

The role of heat and mass transfer in modern engineering applications and industrial processes is quite significant. Cutting-edge research in thermal management, additive manufacturing, green buildings, and micro and nano-scale transport phenomena in biological systems are becoming popular along with traditional fields such as power plants, internal combustion engines, refrigeration and air conditioning. Over the world, intensive research is in progress on all aspects of fluid flow and heat transfer using theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches. The goal of this conference is to gather scholars from all over the world to present advances in the fields of transport phenomena and to foster an environment conducive to exchanging ideas and information. This conference will also provide an ideal environment to develop new collaborations on the fundamentals, applications, and products of the mentioned fields. This conference includes invited keynote talks by distinguished experts from industry and academia (across the globe) and many parallel technical sessions spread over four days. This would serve as a platform for young researchers to interact with academic experts and get motivated further to produce high quality research. This edition of the conference will be jointly hosted by IIT Patna and BIT Patna during the period of 14th-17th December, 2023. It will bring together the scientific minds in the area of heat and mass transfer from all corners of the country and the world.

ISHMT Webpage

The Indian Society for Heat and Mass Transfer (ISHMT) has been acting as a nodal agency in India stimulating researchers engaged in various areas of heat and mass transfer and bringing them together for fruitful interaction and exchange of ideas. The ISHMT organized the first National Heat and Mass Transfer Conference at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras in 1971. Subsequently, the conference has been held once every two years at different places across the country. In these conferences, many well-known experts from abroad participated, exchanged technical information, and shared their expertise with the Indian researchers. To foster more significant interaction with the researchers from overseas, ISHMT has started collaborating with other premier professional societies. During the period of 1994-2013, ISHMT and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) had jointly organized this conference. After that, ISHMT and American Society of Thermal and Fluids Engineers (ASTFE) are jointly organizing this conference.
