From the ICT 2020 Organizing Committee

Dear ICT 2020 Attendees and Exhibitors,

The International Thermoelectric Society (ITS) and the organizers of the International Conference on Thermoelectrics 2020 (ICT 2020) have made the difficult decision to cancel ICT 2020 scheduled for June 28 to July 2, 2020, in Seattle, WA, USA.

The ITS leadership and the ICT 2020 Organizing Committee have been following the news for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) from the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as other federal and local governments. The number of cases throughout the world continue to rise and orders have been given to ban travel and “stay home”. The health and well-being of our members, attendees, exhibitors, and community are our top priority, making it impossible for our community to gather for ICT 2020.

It is a profound disappointment for the members of the organizing committee who have devoted more than a year of planning to make ICT 2020 a memorable and fruitful event. We request your patience, as we start to work on details of cancelling registration, dorm rooms, meeting rooms, etc. Please visit our website ( as additional information becomes available.
