ASME is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation to ensure the health and safety of our meeting and conference participants, as well as our staff. We will also be monitoring the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) as the situation progresses.
As of this date, the conference is currently scheduled to take place. Please continue your work in the expectation that the conference will occur. All dates in the current Publications Schedule will be followed. Should it be determined that the conference may need to be postponed, cancelled, or held virtually instead of in-person for the health and safety of all, ASME has committed to offering the option of publishing the papers through our usual channels. Please note that the one author per paper registration requirement will still hold should the conference be held virtually, but the presentation requirement may be waived. Should this become necessary, virtual conference registration fees will be discounted from the regular conference fee. If postponed, ASME will work with the conference organizing committee to determine whether the papers will be published at the time of the scheduled conference or delayed until the rescheduled one.
If there are any changes to these plans, we will provide updates on this website. We understand that you will have questions, so please check back periodically. Thank you.
The next update to this information is scheduled next Wednesday.
The ASME 2020 18th International Conference for International Conference on Nanochannels, Microchannels and Minichannels (ICNMM2020) will be held on July 12 – 15, 2020 in Rosen Shingle Creek, Orlando, FL USA. This year the conference is collocated with the ASME’s Fluids Engineering Division Summer Meeting (FEDSM) and the Summer Heat Transfer Conference (SHT). The conference is intended to provide a platform for researchers to exchange information and identify research needs in this emerging area encompassing many engineering, basic sciences, and bio-medical disciplines. Both fundamental aspects including transport studies at the nano, micro, and mini scales as well as practical applications including thermal management, energy conversion, lab on a chip, fuel cells, micro-heat exchangers, and biomedical devices will be covered. We’ve implemented “Lightning Talks” for Poster Presenters, and we will have many jointly shared tracks and sessions with the Heat Transfer Division and Fluids Engineering Division.
