The Early Days (Volumes 1-7):
The International Cryocooler Conference has been publishing its works since its first conference in 1980. The first seven conferences were typically sponsored by a government organization heavily involved in the field of cryogenics—typically a different organization for each conference. Most of the previous proceedings were printed in limited quantities by the sponsoring government organization and are out of print at this time. However, scanned PDF versions of these proceedings are available below.
Our New York Publishers (Volumes 8-13):
Starting in 1994, the ICC began publishing its proceedings as hardcover books in the open literature via our New York publishers: Plenum, Kluwer, and Springer. These are titled Cryocoolers 8 through Cryocoolers 13 and are available in print and eBook format from Amazon, and electronically as B&W PDFs from Springer’s SpringerLink website. SpringerLink links for Cryocoolers 8 to 13 are located in the volume links below for convenient access to the papers in these volumes.
Now Papers in Color (Volumes 14 to 20):
Starting in 2006, the ICC began publishing its proceedings as hardcover books in the open literature via our own ICC Press; books 14 through 19 also included a CD of all the papers as color PDFs. Thus, for Cryocoolers 14 to 19, the author’s papers are available in hardcover book form via Amazon, and as digital color PDFs via the book’s CD. With Cryocoolers 20 we deleted the CD, as all papers are in color in the book and are electronically available as color PDFs on this website.
