Welcome to Chemnitz

On behalf of the JETC 11 organization, I would like to welcome you to Chemnitz, Germany, for the 11th Joint European Thermodynamics Conference in June 2011.

The aim of the conference is to provide a meeting ground for thermodynamicists from all of Europe and surroundings and to enlighten various aspects of modern thermodynamics. In topical sessions emphasis will be on the connection of thermodynamics to diverse fields of science, possibly such as climate research, biology, chemical reaction theory, and optimization. Additionally, there will be invited talks giving a broad overview of selected topics. A poster exhibition will offer space for all kinds of thermodynamics at the conference.

The Ilya Prigogine Prize in Thermodynamics will be bestowed on a promising young researcher in thermodynamics for his/her Ph.D. dissertation for the sixth time during this conference.

Karl Heinz Hoffmann
