The International Thermoelectric Society and the organizers of ICT 2011 wish to thank all of our sponsors!


The annual International Conference on Thermoelectrics is traditionally held in North America, Europe and Asia on a rotational basis. Following Freiburg, Germany in 2009 and Shanghai, China, in 2010,  the ITS Board has accepted a proposal from Professor Donald Morelli of Michigan State University  to organize and host  ICT2011, to be held in the beautiful resort area of Traverse City, Michigan, USA.

The Weather Channel ranks Traverse City behind only San Diego, CA and Maui, HI as the best summer climate in the US!

The ICT is the leading annual meeting in the field of thermoelectrics. Over 400 experts from academia, industry, government laboratories, and research institutions are invited to discuss the state-of-the-art of the technology, advances in the science of thermoelectricity, latest work in materials research and device design, and opportunities for commercialization.

Further details will be posted here as they become available.
