About The Event
This symposium aims to introduce the topic of our project and will present our main results for the attention of related national researchers. Prof. C. M. Smith will deliver a keynote speech on the thermodynamics of topological insulators and Prof. T. Dereli will give a lecture on contact geometry of thermodynamics. Besides, our invited speakers will give talks and lectures in related subjects, including fundamental topological thermodynamics, black hole thermodynamics, quantum thermal machines, and finite-size effects in nanothermodynamics. There will be open discussion sessions and sufficient breaks for interaction among the participants which we hope the symposium will be a fruitful workshop as a fertile ground for future collaborations and new ideas. We acknowledge all our contributors as well as ITAP, Koç University, ITU Energy Institute, COST Action CA 16221, and TUBITAK for their support.
