GL2020 will host up to 200 oral presentations along with poster presentations. Each contribution is required to submit an abstract and the corresponding manuscript. Only original research efforts on natural refrigeration technologies will be considered during the peer review process. Subsequently, authors are requested to comprehensively address the reviewers’ revisions. Final versions of the accepted papers shall become part of the IIR’s Refrigeration Science and Technology series indexed by SCOPUS and Web of Science.



High-class papers selected from the proceedings of GL2020 and HFO2021 will be recommended to a special issue of the International Journal of Refrigeration (IJR). The authors of the selected contributions will be invited to submit an extended version of the paper to the IJR after the conference.

Young Researchers Award


Due to the online conference environment, we expect that it would be difficult to conduct a fair evaluation of the online presentations. Therefore, we deeply apologize for the cancelation of this award.
