Welcome Message

Welcome to the 32nd International Symposium on Transport Phenomena

Welcome to the 32nd International Symposium on Transport Phenomena (ISTP32), which will be held on March 19-21, 2022 in Tianjin, China (please note that this event was originally planned to be held on September 24-26, 2021, and has been postponed due to the COVID-19 concerns). While this symposium has been held in many countries around the world, it is the second time be held in China since the 5th ISTP held in 1985 in Beijing, chaired by late Prof. B.X. Wang at Tsinghua University.

Transport phenomena, including the heat and mass transfer and fluid flow, can be found from nanoscale to macroscale, from single-phase to multiphase, from non-reactive to reacting flows, and for applications from on the ground to in space. They are the key to numerous energy conversion, storage, utilization, and transportation processes. The ISTP32 will provide a platform for researchers, scientists, engineers, and students around the world to exchange ideas, present new progress, and engage in discussion on future directions and priorities in the areas of transport phenomena. The renewal and making of friendship for participants are the further objectives of the ISTP32 for the future world.

ISTP32 HYBRID: On-site/Online Symposium

Considering the recent COVID-19 situation, ISTP32 will have both face-to-face format (On-site) at the venue and virtual symposium (Online), whereas the previous ISTP31 was held Online.

After battling with the COVID 19 for more than one year, the situation is getting better. Even though we are very optimistic, there might be travel restrictions or national event rules near the conference date. Therefore, the organizing committee has decided to have a hybrid ISTP for the first time. Therefore, we hope that many friends around the world will be able to participate in the symposium in their convenient way. We look forward to seeing you at ISTP32. 

Special Issue of Applied Thermal Engineering

Selected papers with high-quality from ISTP32 proceedings will be further reviewed and published in a special issue of Applied Thermal Engineering.
