What is ESAT about?

The conference aims to cover the advancements in the fundamental methods at the basis of research in applied thermodynamics with a clear impact on the final applications.

The aim is to present the latest findings in these fields and their practical application.

The conference will be in person. It aims to attract researchers and presenters from academia and industry.

Plenary lectures, presentations and poster presentations will form the basis of the conference.
