X-Reports in
Thermal Science and Engineering
Introduction to X-Reports
In recent years, the thermal science and engineering field has greatly expanded and now overlaps with other branches of science, such as physics, material science, biomedical science, nanotechnology, big data, and artificial intelligence. High-level interdisciplinary research demands closer connections and cooperation among global researchers working on a wide range of subjects. Webcam meetings enable global scholars to easily come together to discuss and cooperate on these crucial topics. The X-Reports aim to invite distinguished professionals from various disciplines and countries to give cutting-edge/breakthrough lectures on an interactive platform to encourage new ideas and promote innovations in thermal science and engineering.
