The 2021 American Society of Thermal and Fluids Engineers (ASTFE) Conference will be held on tentative dates: May 23-26, 2021 at Sheraton Hotel, New Orleans, LA, USA. Depending on travels restrictions and/or other circumstances created by COVID-19, the conference would likely be a hybrid of in-person and live on-line technical sessions. Since the 5th Thermal Fluids Engineering Conferences (TFEC) has been postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 conference will be a combination of the 5th and 6th TFEC to accommodate papers transferred from 2020.

ASTFE is the premier international society by and for professionals within the thermal and fluids science and engineering community. The 2021 ASTFE conference provides an international forum for the dissemination of the latest research and knowledge in the thermal and fluid sciences.
