The objective of the International Meeting on Thermodiffusion (IMT) is to bring together researchers from the field of thermodiffusion. This has led to the organization of

  • IMT1 (Toulouse, 1994),
  • IMT2 (Pau, 1996),
  • IMT3 (Mons, 1998),
  • IMT4 (Bayreuth, 2000),
  • IMT5 (Lyngby, 2002),
  • IMT6 (Varenna, 2004)
  • and IMT7 (San Sebastian, 2006).

 

 

IMT8 is the eighth meeting in a series of conferences on thermal diffusion and will be hosted by Forschungszentrum Jülich. These conferences are promoted by EGTR (European Group of Thermodiffusión Research), which is a permanent working team of ECAST (European Centre for Advanced Studies in Thermodynamics). Among others the following topics will be discussed at IMT8:

 

 

  • Thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of fluids in thermal gradients
  • Experimental aspects, theory and numerical methods in thermodiffusion
  • Thermophoresis in macromolecular solutions, airborne particles, colloidal suspensions, and biological fluids
  • Thermodiffusion in porous media and enhanced oil recovery
  • Hydrodynamic instabilities and convective patterns induced by the Soret effect
  • Non-equilibrium fluctuations in thermally inhomogeneous fluids
  • Thermal diffusion effects in crystal growth and polymer processing
  • Thermal diffusion in micro-gravity
  • Thermal diffusion in biological transport
  • Applications of thermal diffusion
