Organizations - LTE

Cryogenic Society of America - The Cryogenic Society of America is a not-for-profit technical society and trade association serving all those interested in any phase of cryogenics - the science and technology of very low temperatures. The Society has almost 500 individual members and almost 100 corporate sustaining members, from around the world. Members receive the quarterly magazine, Cold Facts, which also appears on the Website. Members come from all areas of cryogenics: industrial and sales companies, universities, national labs, R&D organizations, and others. Visit the Website at Membership details and forms are available there for download. The Society also publishes a Corporate Directory which lists corporate sustaining members by category of products or services. The Space Cryogenics Workshop is a Division of CSA. CSA puts on various Short Courses on topics such as the cryogenic properties of materials, superconductivity, and helium cryogenics.

Cryogenic Society of Europe - Founded 22 April 2015, its objectives are to strengthen the European position of cryogenic technologies; to represent European activities in cryogenic technologies in social, scientific, industrial and political forums; to promote communication and information exchange in the area of cryogenic technologies; to foster the training of young researchers in the area of cryogenic technologies; to bring together those active in cryogenic technologies and potential user communities so as to stimulate applications of these technologies. The Association is not profit-oriented. Visit the Website at
