Call For Papers

The 2017 IIAR Call for Technical Papers in now closed.  We are currently accepting Technical Paper submission for the 2018 Natural Refrigeration Conference & Expo in Colorado Springs, CO.

How to Submit a Technical Program Proposal

Proposals to present a technical paper, workshop, panel, or other program element during the IIAR Natural Refrigeration Conference & Expo must include:
  • Contact information, including the names, addresses, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses for all authors
  • A 150-200 word abstract
  • A 50-75 word summary of the practical application
  • A 100-word biographical paragraph for each author
  • A signed copyright release form


Technical Paper Guidelines

Technical papers should explore technical or regulatory topics that are substantiated by original research and development with documented references.  Case studies should describe actual situations where actions, testing, or data accumulation are used to prove or demonstrate the outcome of applied methods, and could be reasonably applied to other similar situations. Promotion of products or companies (commercialism) is prohibited.  The IIAR recognizes that new technologies are often offered by only one or a few companies. In these cases, it might be obvious that a method or technology is unique to a company. However, authors must strive to describe the method or technology based on a neutral analysis. 

If you have any questions or need further information you may contact

IIAR offers one "complimentary" conference registration per technical paper to the primary author. The primary authors of the highest rated technical paper presentation during the conference will receive the IIAR Award for Presentation Excellence.

For each year's conference, IIAR publishes the technical paper proceedings, and provides them to each conference attendee. Authors work as part of a team that includes IIAR's staff, peer reviewers, professional editors, and layout and printing specialists. An important element of your commitment to authoring a technical paper is providing your draft and graphics in forms and styles that require the least amount of modification in preparation for printing the proceedings. It is also important that each author meet the deadline for each draft. Your cooperation in meeting the draft deadlines, using the guidelines, is crucial for your paper to appear in the conference proceedings.
