Important Notes

  • Extended abstract submission is required for presentation
    It is the requirement for those who will make a presentation at PRTEC2016 to submit his/her extended abstract by the deadline (October 14 November 6, 2015). The submitted extended abstract will be used for peer-review by the scientific committee, based on which the final acceptance for presentation will be judged. See "Submission" on the top menu for the details.
  • One registration is necessary for one paper presentation
    One registration is required per one talk presentation at the PRTEC2016 meeting. See "Registration" on the top menu for the detail.


The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) had co-developed a successful series of joint conferences on thermal engineering (AJTEC) at four-year intervals. The AJTEC series were held in: Honolulu, Hawaii (1983 and 1987); Reno, Nevada (1991); Maui, Hawaii (1995); San Diego, California (1999); Hawaii Island, Hawaii (2003); Vancouver, Canada (2007); and Honolulu, Hawaii (2011).

JSME has decided that a new conference series, Pacific Rim Thermal Engineering Conference (PRTEC), will be launched collaborating with the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers (KSME) and the American Society of Thermal and Fluids Engineers (ASTFE). The key themes of PRTEC 2016 are "Fundamental", "Interdisciplinary" and "Diversity" with a vision for the future of Thermal Engineering.

The PRTEC 2016 provides an international forum for the exchange of new ideas and direction related to the future thermal engineering and the presentation of the latest work in this field. We strongly encourage attendance and extended abstract submission not only from the Pacific-rim countries but also from all over the world.
