A tradition for over a century, the IIR International Congresses of Refrigeration bring together scientists, researchers, engineers and technicians from around the world every 4 years. The ICR 2019 Congress, taking place from August 24-30, is the next stop on our journey. Our theme, “Refrigeration for Human Health and Future Prosperity”, befits our host city of Montreal, where the original Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer (such as CFCs and HFCs) was signed.

Over 1,000 abstracts have been received, underlining the strong participation that is a hallmark of all ICR Congresses. Our focus will be on the current issues we are all facing: energy saving and energy efficiency, food supply, health, reduction of global warming, and the protection of the ozone layer. Count yourself in! Join us in Montreal from August 24-30 for the highly anticipated ICR 2019 Congress.
