Following on from the successful IIR International Congress of Refrigeration (ICR2015), the long anticipated papers and proceedings are now available to download in Fridoc.

The Internationl Congress of Refrigeration (ICR), which took place in Yokohama, Japan on 16-22 August, 2015, was the biggest refrigeration event of the year with 1,186 attendees; 643 papers, including 120 posters and 13 keynotes, were presented, and 14 workshops also took place.

Given that the obligation to phase out HCFCs and to very probably phase down HFCs is currently the main driver of innovation and change in refrigerating equipment, a number of presentations covered refrigerants.

However, all sectors and technologies were present, providing ideal networking opportunities for all attendees.

The 643 available papers

The topics addressed in the 643 papers and 13 keynotes presented during the International Congress of Refrigeration (ICR2015) in Yokohama impeccably illustrate current research areas in the refrigeration sector.

IIR Conference papers

The IIR produces innovative conference publications in various refrigeration technology areas recognized worldwide by academia and industry. Articles submitted for publication follow a paper selection process and are peer-reviewed before they are published.

Not only are they published in the IIR’s database, FRIDOC, but they are indexed in SCOPUS and Web of Science.

About IIR events

IIR International Congresses of Refrigeration (ICR) are milestone events. Since 1908, a congress has been held once every 4 years uniting refrigeration stakeholders from every corner of the world. Find out more

The IIR organizes and co-sponsors over 12 annual conferences and meetings worldwide. We are also highly involved in the technical program development of numerous events including trade events, training workshops, and other programs.
