The conference will have three main themes 

Rankine Themes table

The conference will focus on refrigeration systems with the reverse Rankine cycle and power generation systems using organic fluids. Abstracts about steam power generation will not be suitable for the conference unless in the context of ORC. 

The working fluids stream will accept abstracts dealing both natural working fluids and fluorine-based refrigerants. 

The programme committee would especially welcome papers comparing organic Rankine cycle against other power generation applications.
