The IMT14 will be moved to the end of May or beginning of June 2021. We will do our best to avoid collision with other conferences attracting the same group of researchers. More information will be given in August.

We are sorry for the inconvenience of the situation, but in the interest of helping everybody to stay healthy, we believe that this is a necesasary action to take.




The 14th International meeting is part of a series which has been arranged every second year since 1994. Last time was in 2018 in London, organized by Prof. Fernando Bresme and his colleagues at Imperial College. The next meeting will be held at Norwegian University of Science and Technology - NTNU, organized by Prof. emeritus Bjørn Hafskjold and his colleagues.

The topics of the conference will follow the traditional pattern of

  • Theoretical, experimental, and numerical methods to investigate thermodiffusion in binary, ternary and multicomponent mixtures

  • Non equilibrium thermodynamics of fluids under thermal stress

  • Non-equilibrium fluctuations in thermally inhomogeneous fluids

  • Macromolecular solutions, airborne particles, colloidal suspensions, and biological fluids: the thermophoresis case

  • Thermodiffusion in porous media and enhanced oil recovery

  • Soret-driven hydrodynamic instabilities and convective patterns

  • Thermodiffusion effects in crystal growth and polymer processing

  • Thermodiffusion in microgravity

  • Thermodiffusion in biological transport

  • Applications of thermal diffusion
