One of the world's premier technical events leading the discussion of combustion engine technology across the industrial board is the CIMAC World Congress, which is set to convene at its 24th event in Kyoto, Japan, from June 7 to 11.
The CIMAC Congress - founded in 1951 and is the French acronym for International Council on Combustion Engines - takes place every 2 to 3 years, bringing together manufacturers of diesel engines, gas engines and gas turbines, users such as shipowners, utilities and rail operators, and suppliers, oil companies, classification societies and scientists from all over the world, to encourage the exchange of scientific and technical information and to promote a higher level of understanding among the combustion engine community. 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.
More than 600 top-level participants from all over the world are expected to attend this congress. As at previous CIMAC Congresses, there will be an attractive social program in the evenings and a daytime program with optional tours for accompanying persons.
Optional Post Congress tours with interesting visits and insights into Japanese industry are offered for Friday, June 11.
