Eurotherm Seminar 106

The aim of the seminar "Physical and chemical phenomena in heat exchanger and multifunctional reactor for sustainable technology" was to bring together researchers, academics and practitioners interested in the application area of heat exchangers and multifunctional reactors.

The seminar was organized by:

  • Pr. Hassan PEERHOSSAINI       Univ. Paris-Diderot
  • Dr. Serge RUSSEIL                  Mines Douai
  • Dr. Thierry LEMENAND           Univ. Angers

Paris - France

 The seminar was held at the Université Paris-Diderot (Amphi Turing), School of Physics, Paris, FRANCE.



The gala dinner (Monday 10/10/2016) was dinner cruise on boat restaurant.

This gala dinner was successful and the atmosphere on board was looking very good:



The conference was co-sponsored by:


International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer (ICHMT)

Société Française de Thermique (SFT)
