Objective and Scope

Thermophysical properties of substances in gas, liquid, solid phases play an important role in many technical and industrial processes. The basis of nearly all technical processes are the mass, energy, momentum, entropy, and exergy balances and the thermophysical properties of substances. Thermophysical properties are experimentally measured and equations of state are constructed from these results. Today it is possible to calculate thermophysical properties using molecular theory for simple substances. Mechanical and rheological properties are also of primordial importance in characterization of materials. Their knowledge is important in determining the end use of materials. This conference objective is to report on current research development in this active area and serve as a forum for discussions and collaborations.

German Research Foundation has supported our conference in this year. http://www.dfg.de

Additional Information

The city of Rostock is located at the estuary of the Warnow river, with the city-center being positioned about 12 kilometres south to the coast of the Baltic Sea. Rostock was founded in the 11th century, but the rise of the city got started with its membership of the Hanseatic League, beginning in 1251. In the 14th century Rostock was a signifcant seaport and market place. After the reformation and the thirty-years-war, ending in 1648, the importance of the city stalled, but Rostock re-emerged in the 19th century with the industrialization of Germany. Today, with about 200000 citizens, Rostock is the largest city in the north German state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

The University of Rostock is the third oldest university in Germany in continuous operation, and was founded in 1419 by confirmation of Pope Martin V. At the end of the 19th century the university was transformed into a modern university following the Humboldtian model based on Friedrich Schleiermacher's liberal ideas pertaining to the importance of freedom, seminars, and laboratories in universities. Today, the university employs about 3000 people, with about 300 professors representing nine faculties. The university is currently home to about 14400 students.
