Research Director

Join us at the International Conference on Cold Climate Technology 26-28 May 2014 in Narvik, Norway.

We invite you to consider submitting an abstract at http://www.iccct2014.com/ and joining us at the International Conference on Cold Climate Technology 2014 (ICCCT2014) 26 - 28 May 2014 in Narvik, Norway.

Industrial activity is increasing in cold regions, and unique technological challenges persist to operations in this environment. ICCCT is a research and development forum for the exchange on challenges, progress and innovative solutions related to the presence of ice, darkness, low temperatures and harsh climate, and vast distances.

Please see the conference web page for more details:http://www.iccct2014.com/
