    Policy Statement for Publishing the Proceedings of
    the 15th International Heat Transfer Conference

    We are confident that the papers accepted for presentation at the 15th International Heat Transfer Conference (IHTC-15) shall make a solid contribution to the advancement of thermal science and engineering. The manuscript review will be carried out rigorously so that final accepted papers will have the quality that is equivalent to well-established international journals. In order to achieve this goal, all submissions must be based on original and unpublished research work. It is also assumed that manuscripts have not been published elsewhere nor have they been submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.
