This year's Engine Research Center Symposium will combine state-of-the-art technology presentations with face-to-face networking opportunities for professionals associated with technologies impacting fuel efficiency and emission, including engine downsizing, pressure boosting, intelligent combustion, thermal efficiency improvements, fuel developments, fully variable valvetrains, direct injection, and other developing technologies.

Speakers include internationally recognized experts in engine research and senior executives from the major automotive/engine industries including General Motors, Ford, Cummins, Caterpillar, General Electric, Ricardo, Saudi Aramco, Sandia National Lab, IFP Energies nouvelles, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Manufacturers Emission Controls Association (MECA), Oakridge National Lab, Lund University, Purdue University, University of Minnesota, and University of Michigan. Talks will be organized around Engine Combustion, Advanced Combustion, and Advanced Engine and Emission controls.

Participants will include automotive and industrial light, medium and heavy duty OEMs, fuel and engine suppliers, government labs, and academia.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Hear and discuss the latest efficiency-boosting combustion technologies as developed for both the light and medium to heavy duty automotive and industrial segments
  • Learn how and what fuels will be used in future engines around the world as applied to these emerging technologies and what results have been achieved to date
  • Discover where researchers are headed with future fuel economy and emissions aftertreatment for light and medium to heavy duty vehicles
  • Network and interact with leading researchers, technologists and design engineers from government, OEMs, academia, and supplier companies
