It is a non-profit association acting worldwide.
The technical program of the forthcoming CIMAC Congress includes 185 papers from 23 countries in 44 sessions.
Panel sessions on 'Users view and expectation on the future of ICE' as well as 'Gas turbine future Aspects' will be held on Wednesday afternoon. June 9.
The traditional 'Collin Trust Lecture', followed by a panel session on 'Environmentally and human friendly ICE' on Thursday afternoon, June 10, will round off the technical sessions at this year's CIMAC Congress.
This year, ASME-ICED members are also being asked to participate in the CIMAC Congress being held in June 2004 in Kyoto. Japan. For the first time ASME-ICED is organizing four sessions at the congress, which will take the place of their usual spring conference.
