The third ASME Micro/Nanoscale Heat and Mass Transfer International Conference (MNHMT2012) was held in Atlanta, GA on March 3–6, 2012 (http://www.asmeconferences.org/MNHMT2012). The conference was cosponsored by the ASME Heat Transfer Division and Georgia Institute of Technology and was organized by G. P. “Bud” Peterson as the General Chair and Zhuomin Zhang as the Program Chair. This conference series is dedicated to Dr. Chang-Lin Tien (1935–2002), a world renowned scholar, a leader in higher education, and a close friend and colleague. Professor Tien’s tremendous intellect and unique vision have continued to inspire researchers to expand the frontiers of micro/nanoscale heat and mass transfer. The first two conferences were held in Tainan (January 2008) and Shanghai (December 2009).

Research and education on micro/nanoscale heat and mass transfer have advanced rapidly over the past 25 years through the efforts of many dedicated researchers. The results have...
