Entropy 2019 Travel Award in Thermodynamics
As Editor-in-Chief of Entropy and on behalf of the Evaluation Committee, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2019 Entropy Travel Award in the field of Thermodynamics.
Julian Gonzalez Ayala is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Salamanca, whose research interest involves general properties of thermodynamics systems, optimization and stability of operation regimes, thermal fluctuations, multi-objective optimization, optimization of hybrid power plants, and entropy analysis of complex systems and self-organized critical systems. He is planning to present his work “Thermodynamic Self-Improvement in the Stability of a Low Dissipative Refrigerator Engine” at the 15th Joint European Thermodynamics Conference (JETC2019, 21–24 May 2019, Barcelona, Spain). The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs to be used to attend this conference.
With so many high-quality applicants, it was a very difficult decision, and we thank all the applicants. We wish to congratulate Dr. Julian Gonzalez Ayala for his accomplishments.
