Welcome Message

It is almost exactly 200 years since Thomas Seebeck discovered the Seebeck effect. The field of thermoelectrics is now at an exciting time in history, with new high performance materials, novel enhancement principles being discovered, innovative module development, and the long held dream of wide-spread power generation applications appearing to be closer to realization then it has ever been before. With the urgent necessity of energy saving to approach the carbon neutral/zero emission goals for the environment, and also energy harvesting to dynamically power the trillion sensors for the IoT society, for example, thermoelectric technology is expected to play a large and critical role.
It has been an extremely difficult and tragic two years with the worldwide pandemic, and hopefully in 2022 we are finally coming out and in the stage of recovering from it. Online conferences can never replace the dynamical and myriad exchanges and discussions organically blossoming at onsite conferences. It is our great pleasure and honor to invite the worldwide thermoelectric community and any interested members of the whole scientific or industrial or even political community to join us for the 41st International Conference on Thermoelectrics (& 7th Asian Conference on Thermoelectrics) ICT/ACT2022 to be held in the vibrant and attractive Sendai City in northern Japan from June 26-30, 2022.
Japan has held the conference before in Yokohama in 1993, Nagoya in 1998, and Kobe in 2013, and has had a long history of active research and development on thermoelectrics. By hosting ICT in Japan for the first time in about 10 years, it will be a good chance to relay the recent academic and industrial ongoings of Japan to thermoelectric conversion technology experts around the world and to make a significant contribution to the development of this field.
Hopefully all participants can create a new chapter for thermoelectrics at this conference, and we can recover our in-person vital and dynamic exchanges which are critical for science advancement and innovation.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
