ASME 2014 12th Biennial Conference on Engineering Systems Design and Analysis (ESDA2014)
Welcome to ESDA2014, ASME's premier European mechanical engineering conference.
Organized by ASME in cooperation with the Danish Society of Engineers (IDA) and the Danish Society of Mechanical engineers (IDA Mechanical), ESDA2014 will be held at the Tivoli Congress Center in Copenhagen, Denmark, June 25-27, 2014.
Now in its 12th year, participants from more than 50 countries convene and attend presentations of more than 500 technical papers and case studies, ranging from theoretical developments to industry applications.
ESDA2014 will also feature ASME's INDUSTRY IMPACT FORA, two Forum Plenary Session Panel Discussions focusing on ASME's strategic initiatives on Advanced Manufacturing and Energy.
We look forward to welcoming you to Copenhagen and to your participation in ESDA2014.

Energy Impact Forum
Thursday, June 26, 2014
Plenary Session: Energy Supply Post-2020
Participants at this Plenary Session Panel Discussion will provide expert insights into Denmark's future renewable energy system and into opportunities and strategies for entering the shale play market. Discussions will also focus on biomass for renewable energy production and greening the transport sector.
ASME-IDA Student Design Competition
ASME-IDA Student Design Competition and Workshop
Thursday, June 26 and Friday, June 27, 2014
At this competition, ASME and IDA student members will demonstrate their engineering skills during the Student Design Competition (June 26) and the Young Engineers Solution (YES) workshop (June 27). The Design Competition will focus on the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
The YES workshop will use the on-site robot simulation based on LEGO Mindstorms and Exterior, a virtual automation platform for 3D visualization. The winners will win cash prizes and opportunities to travel to Montreal, Canada, in November 2014 to compete in the finals against other students from around the world.
Join fellow industrials, academics, and ASME/IDA/IDA engineering members the world over as they convene at ESDA2014 and participate in a vitalized technical program. Technical Sessions, workshops, and peer-reviewed papers and presentations support the central themes of Advanced Manufacturing and Energy.
Network with new and existing colleagues and business partners during many social activities.
