NEW! : Proceeding of 8th IMAT is available here.

About the Conference

The International Meeting on Advances in Thermofluids (IMAT) is an initiative to bring together academicians, research scientists and all interested parties from all over the world in a common platform to foster discussion, exchange ideas for the exploration of future research in the fields of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, combustion and all topics related to thermal fluids.

IMAT is a series of conferences that is held annually on the rotational basis between three universities, namely Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), National University of Singapore (NUS) and Universitas Indonesia (UI).

Previous IMAT conferences are as follows:

  • 1st IMAT - UTM Johor, Malaysia in 2008
  • 2nd IMAT - Safari Park, Bogor, Indonesia in 2009
  • 3rd IMAT - Furama Hotel, Singapore in 2010
  • 4th IMAT - Avillion Hotel, Melaka, Malaysia in 2011
  • 5th IMAT - Nirwana Resort, Bintan Island, Indonesia in 2012
  • 6th IMAT - NUS, Singapore in 2013
  • 7th IMAT - Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2014

This year, on 11th - 12th November 2015, Universitas Indonesia will be given the chance to organize the next 8th IMAT. Selected papers will be featured in Scopus indexed publication, IJTECH,  Applied Mechanic and Materials, Trans Tech Publications Ltd, Switzerland. IMAT 2015 is sponsored by The Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education, Republic of Indonesia.
