MRS Spring 2019 - April 22-26, 2019 in Phoenix AZ [conference site]:

  • Prof. Marconnet will will provide an introduction to thermal transport measurement techniques spanning a range of length and time scales. A brief discussion of recent key experimental results that have guided our understanding of phonon transport will be emphasized. Open challenges in the field will be highlighted at Tutorial QN05—Building Understanding of Phonon Transport—Calculations and Experiment [details]

ITHERM 2019 - May 28 - 31, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV [conference site]:
