Dear Participants:

We welcome you to the 3rd Asia Conference on Thermoelectrics (3rd ACT) and the 5th Micro & Nanoscale Heat Transfer and Energy Workshop (MNHTE2018), holding together at Institute of Atomic and Molecular Science of Academia Sinica, in the campus of National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan.

The 3rd ACT, following its predecessors in Wuhan (China) and Kyoto (Japan), will provide a platform for researchers interested in various topics of thermoelectric materials to exchange their latest works. We especially welcome participants from our neighborhoods to visit us, find more common interests, and establish more collaborations in the future.

The MNHTE2018 will cover frontier topics of heat/energy transfer phenomena of novel materials by advanced tools or novel methods. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers in Taiwan and sharing their works with international scholars. Because heat transfer phenomena are of fundamental importance in improving thermoelectric properties, we believe that it will be highly beneficial to bring researchers from the two conferences together.

The 3rd ACT and MNHTE2018 will have tutorials on Oct 7, followed by two-days conferences on Oct 8~9, at the campus of National Taiwan University. The conference is organized by Academia Sinica and National Taiwan University. We look forward to your visit and your enthusiastic participation.
