International Congress of Refrigeration

24 Aug 2019 to 30 Aug 2019

icr2019logoThe ICR 2019 Congress theme will be  “Refrigeration for Human Health and Future Prosperity”. It will focus on the current issues we are all facing: energy saving and energy efficiency, food supply, health, reduction of global warming and the protection of the ozone layer.

The scientific and industry communities of Canada and the United States will  host this Congress and are inviting international colleagues to come present their latest product development and research, both theoretically and experimentally, in all areas of refrigeration, air conditioning, and sustainable building. Over 1,000 abstracts have been received for papers to be given at the six day event.

The ICR 2019 Congress also wishes to invite young researchers and students and to give them the chance to showcase the fruits of their research.  The IOR and IIR will be supporting a Student Researcher Networking event during the congress to help young researchers to meet some of the most experienced and well-respected scientists who will be present.

The congress will also be hosting a large exhibition at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.

The IOR will organise two workshops at the Congresss based on its international projects:

  • a training event on the theme of REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE Blended Learning for Alternative Refrigerants 
  • an information workshop on CryoHub energy storage
