Cryogenics in medicine, biotechnology and industrial technology

The 3rd International conference aims to highlight new discoveries, fundamental research and technological advances, along the lines of cryogenic devices, procedures applied in such diverse applications as cryosurgery, Cryo-electrolysis, 3D Cryoprinting, Cryogenic biological matter preservation and other interdisciplinary applications of cryogenics.

Based on experience and a helpful collaboration, we propose the Event organisation as a joint effort, availability and goodwill, of following institutions:

Hotel Intercontinental 5*, Bucharest

Venue: Hotel Intercontinental 5*, Bucharest
The Intercontinental Hotel was built in 1998 and features Art Nouveau architecture, represents the modern, luxurious and unforgettable views in the heart of the Bucharest.
This impressive hotel is located within 10 minutes' walk from Bucharest Old city center, offering access to many brasseries and restaurants.

Accommodation (not included in the conference's fee) - Our recommendation is Hotel InterContinental Bucharest 5*.

Early Booking Accommodation - available only after Registration at ICCRT 2020, you may request confirmation to Conference's dedicated person, Mrs. Ruxandra Cernat, email: cernat.ruxandra@ihg.com, mentioning in subject ICCRT no.
Having in view the limited rooms availability at InterContinental Hotel, we strongly recommend booking for period October 07-09.


The Organizing Committee ICCRT 2020 invites companies and institutions to showcase and promote their modern products and equipment in the conference areas.
The aim of the exhibition is to present and inform the professional community of new products used in cryogenics and refrigeration domains.
Therefore, we consider exhibition area as an opportunity for designers, manufacturers, scientists and companies representatives, to meet each other and to exchange novelties as applicability and impact within domain.


The Organizing Committee ICCRT 2020 encourages companies and institutions to participate as Sponsors, which would benefit according subscription amount, of following facilities:
