The Micro and Nanoscale Phase Change Phenomena GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
The second meeting of the Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Micro and Nanoscale Phase Change Phenomena aims to provide grounds for discussion of all topics regarding both fundamental research and applications of phase change heat transfer among young researchers. Graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and early-career industrial scientists are invited to present their latest advances and discoveries to their peers with the aim of facilitating a discussion of the results and building connections to enhance future research directions. This GRS brings together multi-disciplinary expertise world-wide to construct active discussions and inspire new ideas in the heat transfer community.
This GRS will cover all aspects of micro and nanoscale phase change phenomena ranging from basic to applied research. Oral and poster presentations will include new measurement and characterization techniques and latest discoveries in theoretical description of phase change phenomena. Furthermore, advances in phase change heat transfer enhancement through the modification of fluids, surfaces, and interfaces will be discussed alongside modeling and simulation of micro and nanoscale phase change phenomena. Finally, various applications of phase change heat transfer including but not limited to thermal management, boiling/condensation, water harvesting, and heat pipe design will be presented.
