The International Symposium on Multiphase Flow, Heat Mass Transfer and Energy Conversion (ISMF) is a series of international academic conferences organized by the State Key Laboratory of Multiphase Flow in Power Engineering. So far, this top-of-the-line conference builds on the success of eight previous workshops / symposiums held in 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2005, 2009, 2012, 2016 in China. With the successfully organization of these previous conferences, the exchanges and cooperation between domestic and international peers are strengthened in the multiphase flow, heat and mass transfer and the energy conversion and utilization of discipline, latest research results were showed in the field of the multiphase flow and its related engineering thermal physics subject research. By following the series conferences of International Symposium on Multiphase Flow, Heat Mass Transfer and Energy Conversion (ISMF), which have been successfully held since 1984, the newly established World Conference on Multiphase Transportation, Conversion & Utilization of Energy (MTCUE-2022) will continue to provide a first-class academic exchange platform for scholars, students and engineering technicians to discuss the frontier and challenging problems in multiphase flow, including the basic phenomena and theory, the modelling and mathematical methods, the interface reaction and process, etc., as well as the latest progresses in energy systems and technologies.

Energy is the essential basis for human survival and sustainable development. Building a clean, low-carbon and efficient energy system has become a world consensus. The clean, low-carbon and efficient utilization of fossil energy and the large-scale, low-cost and efficient utilization of renewable energy have become the important tasks and the inevitable challenges for the current human society.

Multiphase flow is a basic science to study multiphase fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, combustion, chemical reaction, etc., in which two or more substances with different phases, states and components coexist and have a clear interface. Multiphase flow not only involves the material structure and the transmission characteristics of basic particles and energy, but also deeply integrates with basic sciences such as physics, chemistry and materials. Multiphase flow and its phenomena have been encountered in various application fields, such as fossil energy, renewable energy, hydrogen energy, nuclear energy, power engineering, petrochemical industry, environment and so on. It builds an important bridge between basic theoretical research and industrial engineering practice. It plays an important supporting and irreplaceable role in the breakthrough of energy science theories, the development of energy technologies, and even the revolution of industry and human society systems.

MTCUE-2022 will encourage the presentation of the cutting-edge research results closely related to multiphase flow in the basic phenomena, underlying mechanism, mathematical methods and other basic theories in the process of energy conversion and utilization. MTCUE-2022 will be in Xi’an on 27-31 Jul. 2022, covering a wide spectrum from fundamental research to industrial application, with topics including but not limited to: (1)Interfacial Phenomena & energy and mass transfer, (2)Multiphase flow and heat transfer,(3)Reactive Multiphase Flow,(4)Modeling and Numerical Methods,(5)Experimental Techniques and Instrumentation,(6)Resource material development, conversion and utilization(rare-earth, unconventional oil & gas),(7)Liquid/solid disposal conversion and utilization,(8)Low carbon technology and new energy,(9)Industrial process multiphase flow(petroleum, nuclear engineering) ,(10)New crossed fields about multiphase flow(medicine, traffic, bionic...)

Building a sustainable energy system represents one of the mega-challenges in 21st century that have triggered a quest for alternative energy solutions both in academia and industry. The forthcoming MTCUE-2022 is designed to provide an international opportunity for communication and collaboration essential to propel a multi-disciplinary dialogue on innovative and sustainable idea exchanges in multiphase flow research both in fundamentals and applications in this field. It will be a huge platform for global experts from universities, industry, R & D laboratories and government agencies.
