CIMAC announces call for papers

Event for large engine technology held every three years

CIMAC, the non-profit association representing the large engine technology sector, invites industry stakeholders to submit proposals for its World Congress being held next June in Busan, South Korea.

The World Congress is held every three years and is an opportunity to keep up to date with what is happening in the internal combustion engine industry. Experts from all over the world meet, gather information, discuss with each other, look for solutions and define standards. More than 800 participants, exhibitors, and speakers from all parts of the world came to Vancouver in 2019.

The June 13-17 event in Busan will host engine manufacturers, component suppliers, universities and research institutes, oil companies, shipping companies, powerplant operators, classification societies, railway and locomotive companies and legislators.

“There is simply no better place to learn about the latest developments in the large engine industry than at the CIMAC Congress,” said Christoph Rofka (ABB Turbo Systems), CIMAC vice president of communication. “This is not only my opinion, but obviously also the opinion of the numerous experts who travel to the Congress every time. When CIMAC was founded in 1951, the target was to establish an international organization to discuss and promote technical and scientific knowledge in the large engine technology sector. That has perfectly been achieved, I would say.”

Yhe overarching theme of climate protection will play a prominent role at next year’s Congress. This is also reflected by the CIMAC Congress Technical Program, where technical, environmental, and regulatory trends, developments, opportunities, and challenges are discussed. It is the core of the event, and the call for papers and proposals for the technical program reveal in which direction discussions evolve.

This time, the program will have four main topics: “Intelligent Power Systems,” “Towards Zero Emissions,” “Proven Technologies” and “Fundamental Research.”
