In recent days, we should have attended the 38th Heat Transfer Conference, and our Summer School in September, but we have been forced to postpone both of them to next year. It was a hard decision but necessary to avoid compromising the precious freedom just regained. We can spend this time to deepen and widen what we were going to present, without forgetting the Seminar on Heat Transfer organized on September 28th in order to meet each other, though virtually, also this year.

It is a great pleasure to inform you that the virtual event “2020 UIT Seminar on Heat Transfer” will be organized on 28th September 2020. The authors who submitted abstracts to the UIT2020 Conference will have the opportunity to submit full papers that are undergoing a peer-review process for publication on a special issue of “Journal of Physics: conference series”. Participation in the 2020 UIT Seminar on Heat Transfer is free of charge.

Deadlines for full paper submission and peer review process are:
-    full paper submission within 21/07/2020;
-    peer review process within 04/09/2020;
-    revised paper submission within 24/09/2020.
