Chemical Thermodynamics
30 July–4 August 2006, Boulder, Colorado, USA

For the first time, the following three conferences will be held simultaneously in a one-time event being called THERMO International 2006: the 19th IUPAC International Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics, the 61st Calorimetry Conference, and the 16th Symposium on Thermophysical Properties.

The 19th IUPAC International Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics (19-ICCT) will be held in Boulder, Colorado, in the United States, from 30 July to 4 August 2006. This conference is being organized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Colorado at Boulder. The International Conferences on Chemical Thermodynamics are traditionally held every 2 years and rotate between North America, Europe, and Asia; the 18th conference was held in Beijing, China, in August 2004. The upcoming conference will be held under the auspices of IUPAC and the International Association of Chemical Thermodynamics (IACT).

The program will include major award lectures, plenary lectures, invited lectures, oral presentations, poster papers, database and software demonstrations, and scientific exhibitions. Among the highlights of the program are the Rossini Lecture, the highest award of the ICCT, as well as the IACT Doctorate Awards. The recipient of the 2006 Rossini Lectureship Award is Professor Alexandra Navrotsky of the University of California at Davis, USA (see Wire section, p. 18).

The Joint Scientific Program of the 19th International Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics and the 61st Calorimetry Conference will include the following Symposia and Workshops (an asterisk indicates that the symposium is jointly organized with the 16th Symposium on Thermophysical Properties):

Symposia

• Thermochemistry and Molecular Energetics
• New Materials
• Electrolyte and Non-Electrolyte Solutions Thermodynamics
• Phase Equilibrium, Supercritical Fluids, and Separation Technologies
• Colloid and Interface Science
• Thermodynamics and Properties in the Biological, Medical, Pharmaceutical, Agricultural, and Food Sectors*
• Molecular Modeling including Simulation*
• Ionic Liquids*
• Databases, Data Systems, Software Applications, and Correlations* (in memory of Dr. Randolph Wilhoit)

Workshops

• Thermodynamic Frontiers and Education
• New Experimental Techniques
• Properties and Processes for a Hydrogen-Based Economy

This unique event will provide opportunities for researchers and practitioners worldwide to meet and discuss a broad spectrum of scientific problems in the fields of thermodynamics and thermophysical properties for a wide variety of systems and to discuss applications in chemistry, biology, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, and other areas of science and engineering. Perhaps more important than the distinctions between the institutional labels applied to the disciplines is the continuum of activities involved, from fundamental science, to more empirical engineering approaches to thermodynamics and thermophysical properties, to the field practices where needs may be specific and immediate.
