Purpose of the 24th International Congress of Refrigeration

IIR International Congresses of Refrigeration, ICR, are milestone events. IIR congresses have been held once every 4 years since 1908. Each congress brings together large numbers of refrigeration stakeholders from all parts of the world. At each ICR, cryology, gas processing, thermodynamics, equipment and systems, biology and food technology, storage and transport, air conditioning, heat pumps, and energy recovery are all covered in depth, and important technical issues are discussed.

In 2015 (August 16 - 22), the 24th ICR will be held at Yokohama, Japan. The programme, calls for papers, registration, technical tours, and a wide range of historic and exciting places will be announced on the congress Web site (

About IIR

The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR, is the only independent intergovernmental organization which promotes knowledge of refrigeration and associated technologies to address today's major issues, including food safety, protection of the environment (reduction of global warming, prevention of ozone depletion), and the development of the least developed countries (food, health). The IIR commits itself to improving quality of life and promotes sustainable development.


In 1925, the Japan Society of Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers, JSRAE (, was established to develop and disseminate knowledge on refrigerating and freezing technology and related scientific technologies nationwide and also internationally. Since then, it has functioned over 85 years as a non-profit academic organization in the field.
