Papers of high technical quality related to the development, advancement, and improved understanding of the internal combustion engine are sought for the ASME Internal Combustion Engine Division’s 2012 Spring Technical Conference to be held May 6 – 9, 2012 in Torino, Italy and hosted by Politecnico di Torino. In addition to two-days of technical presentation of accepted papers, the conference highlights networking activities among members of industry, government, and academia, keynote speakers, industrial tours, a banquet, and an overall collegial atmosphere to advance the state of the art of the internal combustion engine.
All offers relating to the internal combustion engine, or interfaces with internal combustion engines, are accepted for rigorous review by experts in the field. Specifically, accepted papers are generally grouped into one of the following technical tracks:
Accepted papers that are presented at the conference will be archived on the conference proceedings CD and by Scopus. Presentation of papers at the conference requires payment of the registration fee (papers not presented at the conference are excluded from both the conference proceedings CD and Scopus). Accepted papers must transfer copyright to ASME, with certain exceptions noted. Please view the ASME ICE Division’s Presentation Policy and the ASME Copyright Policy.
Offerors may submit papers of two types: 1) archival-type research articles and 2) engineering application articles (with strict policy of no commercialization). Accepted archival-type research articles of highest quality and with potential for long-lasting technical contribution will be approved for fast-track publication in ASME’s Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power. Those research articles not selected for fast-track publication may be submitted to ASME’s Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power after presentation at the conference, where standard review process will occur.
Please submit your 400-word or less paper offer / abstract by September 2, 2011.
