Call For Technical Paper
Become active in the natural refrigeration industry by presenting a Technical Paper or Workshop Program at the 2019 IIAR Natural Refrigeration Conference & Expo in Phoenix Arizona, March 3-6, 2019.

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.

Proposals to present a technical paper, workshop, panel, or other program element during the IIAR Natural Refrigeration Conference & Expo must include:
