Aims and Scope
The papers presented at the Thirteenth International Heat Transfer Conference, which was held in Sydney, Australia under the joint auspices of the Australasian Fluids and Thermal Engineering Society and Engineers Australia on behalf of the Assembly for International Heat Transfer Conferences. IHTC-13 was the first in this long-running series to be held in the Southern Hemisphere.
IHTC-13 offered 33 Keynote Lectures, including lectures by the winners of the Max Jakob and Donald Q. Kern Awards of ASME and AIChE; 657 contributed papers (all of which were peer reviewed by members of the International Scientific Committee and their colleagues, to whom we are greatly indebted); seven panel discussions; an Open Forum for the presentation of last minute work; and an exhibition of books and journals. There was an extensive programme of social events and technical visits.
