International events: Purdue

The latest Purdue Conferences (19th International Compressor Engineering Conference and 12th International Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Conference) took place on July 14-17, 2008, in West Lafayette (Indiana, USA). The total attendance of the conference and the short courses (534 people) was almost the same as in 2006, with slightly higher attendance of the refrigeration conference and slightly fewer attendees at the compressor event. This major IIR-co-sponsored event was followed by the 50th Anniversary of the Herrick Laboratories (July 18-19), with interesting technical tours and of course festivities.
