ALOHA! Welcome to CEC/ICMC 2021!

It is our distinct pleasure and honor on behalf of the organizers of the 2021 Cryogenic Engineering Conference and International Cryogenic Materials Conference to invite all to attend the 23rd joint CEC/ICMC, September 12-16, 2021 in Honolulu, Hawaii: Hawaii’s capital and largest municipality of the U.S. state of Hawaii situated on the southeast coast of the island of O’ahu.  The conference will be held at the Hawai’i Convention Center, close to Waikiki Beach strip and hotels. It is a comfortable, 5-minute stroll east of the Conference hotel, the Ala Moana Hotel. Enjoy Hawaii’s renowned relaxed low-key atmosphere blending tropical beauty with Pacific cultures and traditions with easy access to: Pearl Harbor to the west, and Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach to the east of the Ala Moana and the Hawaii Convention Center. To the south and east, the picturesque Ala Wai Promenade is situated within an easy stroll. Local cuisine reflects a multicultural mix of Hawaiian, Polynesian, Japanese, Korean, Philippine, Puerto Rican, Chinese, American and Fusion.

Local sightseeing trips and adventures are readily available on O’ahu, and single day trips to any of the seven Islands of Hawaii are available at reasonable expense. Exploring O’ahu is easy and quite inexpensive with an all-day bus pass ($5.50 US) giving access to all buses travelling in-and-around the island. The conference is exploring various excursions to observatories on the big Island of Hawaii that incorporate numerous cryogenic-enabled technologies including detectors for astrophysics.

Come and enjoy a rich palate of cryogenic-related topics including industry and research and development that are the foundation of the conference. The technical program features the latest research and state-of-the-art developments in all areas of cryogenics, including superconductivity, cryocoolers, cryogenic materials, and applications. Honolulu beckons with a relaxed and thought-provoking environment ripe for lively discussions, shared experiences, and collaboration development.

We look forward to seeing you at CEC/ICMC 2021.  ALOHA, and a very warm welcome to Honolulu!
