Experts from around the world will attend CIMAC Congress from June 12-16, 2023, to discuss the latest developments in the large engine industry and to find solutions to current challenges.

Originally scheduled for 2022, the congress was postponed by one year due to COVID-19.

“We have used the extra time to issue an additional call for papers and asked experts to submit additional abstracts on topics where significant new knowledge is available” said Peter Müller Baum, CIMAC Secretary General.

In total, more than 600 abstracts were submitted in response to the first and second additional calls for papers, of which about 220 have now been approved for full presentations after a review process. Compared to the previous Congress in Vancouver 2019, there are some changes. For example, the number of topics along the focus areas “Intelligent Power Systems,” “Towards Zero Emissions,” “Proven Technologies” and “Fundamental Research” has been expanded from 11 previously to 21 now to provide better orientation while still maintaining a good overview, organizers said.

New formats such, as PechaKucha presentations, have also been introduced. PechaKucha is a storytelling format in which a presenter shows 20 slides for 20 seconds of commentary each.

The congress program is rounded off with discussion panels, poster sessions, an exhibition area, social events, and technical and tourist excursions.

“We are sure that the congress will set important impulses for the future of the industry and offers a unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the large engine industry as well as along the value chain,” said Müller Baum. 

CIMAC is a leading global nonprofit association of the internal combustion machinery industry consisting of members in 27 countries in America, Asia and Europe. CIMAC represents the large engine technology sector. This includes diesel and gas engines which are used for power generation, marine propulsion, and locomotives. CIMAC’s stakeholders include manufacturers, researchers, suppliers and end-users.
