To achieve the overarching goal of efficient nanoscale heat management, synergistic multidisciplinary collaborations are required, bridging statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, molecular modeling, materials science, mechanical engineering, nanodevice fabrication and experiments. The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers with these different backgrounds to discuss the most recent developments in the field of nanophononics.

  • Heat transport in nonlinear systems
  • Phononic devices
  • Thermal radiation: rectification and amplification
  • Heat conduction and phase change systems
  • Thermal cloaking at the nanoscale
