This conference jointly represents the Symposium of the well-established series of conferences on thermophysical properties and the eighteenth in a series of conferences organized by the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS). The Symposium is concerned with theoretical, experimental, simulation, and applied aspects of the thermophysical properties of gases, liquids, and solids, including biological systems. ICPWS is focused on the properties, science, and applications of water, steam and aqueous systems, primarily as needed for the electric power generation community and within climate science. Appropriate topics are:
