20th International Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics, Warsaw, Poland
Aug. 3-9, 2008
Warsaw, Poland

International Conferences on Chemical Thermodynamics (ICCTs) have been
held under the auspices of IUPAC since 1969 rotating between Europe,
North America, and Asia. The first conference was held at Warsaw
(Poland) from August 31 to September 4, 1969 under the name of the 1st
International Conference on Calorimetry and Thermodynamics. Now the
circle has been closed and the 20th International Conference on Chemical
Thermodynamics will be held also at Warsaw on August 3-8, 2008. The
upcoming 20th ICCT will be organised as the third one (after those at
Beijing 2004 and Colorado 2006) under the auspices of the International
Association of Chemical Thermodynamics (IACT)

The 20th ICCT will cover a broad scope of issues related to chemical
thermodynamics, both experimental and theoretical. The conference will
be opened by two introductory general lectures. One will be devoted to
the actual theoretical problems in chemical thermodynamics as seen from
a physicist point of view and the other one to the recent and
prospective industrial applications of chemical thermodynamics

The scientific programme will host symposia and workshops ranging from
classical subjects such as molecular energetics, through ionic liquids
and supercritical phase equilibria up to the most recent topics, such as
thermodynamic approach to nanotechnologies and nanodevices and
environmental thermodynamics.

The 20th ICCT will be hosted in a conference centre GROMADA which offers
in the same place everything what is needed for a good conference (air
conditioned conference facilities, hotel rooms at varied prices, located
in a green area near the airport and having good city communication with
the downtown of Warsaw).

The host city Warsaw offers a number of interesting things to see, learn
and understand, both from historical and actual development point of
view. Come to see traces of Chopin and to hear his famous music.
