The conference programme will highlight new developments and technology trends in the cold chain and sustainability, environmental issues and innovation in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps. The organisers say they would particularly welcome applications for papers to be presented which showcase international and UK innovation in the cold chain, and practical case studies of how sustainable refrigeration technology is being introduced.

There will also be an award for the best paper by a student author. The prize will be awarded for each of the conference themes and the winner will receive a £200 cheque donated by Sabroe.

“There are many fantastic young students involved in our industry and we hope this award will encourage them to participate in this major international conference,” said Judith Evans, chairman of the conference organising committee. “It is a great opportunity to showcase their research and start developing a network of international contacts.”
