Merry Christmas to… who never stops being curious and learning new things, who opens the minds of the young people so they can fly far away, who never spares himself as he knows the work of  a scientist is one of the most wonderful since it creates the future.

38th UIT Heat Transfer Conference
The conference website is online. You are cordially invited to participate in the 38th UIT Heat Transfer Conference, to be held from 22 to 24 June 2020 in Gaeta (Italy). Submission is open.

UIT Summer School 2020
From September 6th to 12th 2020 there will be the 19th Edition of the UIT Summer School on the theme "Multi-scale modelling in heat and mass transfer". As in the past, the school will be held in the ancient Certosa di Pontignano, a unique place at a few kilometers from Siena where nature, history and hospitality blend together.

The 8th edition of the European Thermal Sciences Conference, organized under the auspices of the EUROTHERM Committee, will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from 06 to 10 September 2020. Papers submission deadline is February 28, 2020.

UIT Christmas card 
Curious about UIT Season's Greetings card?
It is a Kármán vortex street behind a circular cylinder at R=140. Water is flowing at 1.4 cm/s past a cylinder of diameter 1 cm. The original B&W image was modified in colors...

Suggested reading
The festive season is an ideal time for good reading...
Here we suggest the book by Max Planck, Treatise on Thermodynamics (1903).
You can read it online or download your own pdf copy.
