ASME ICED Fall Conference Call for Papers

Posted on May 9, 2006

The 2006 ASME Internal Combustion Engine Division Fall Technical Conference will be held in Sacramento, California in November 5th – 8th, 2006. The conference is being hosted by Union Pacific Railroad and will include a tour of Union Pacific’s Roseville facility. Highlights of the conference will include a panel session on locomotive emission reduction efforts in California, and a "Clean Air Technology Showcase" at the UP's Roseville Yard where several low-emission technologies for locomotives will be on display. Social events will be held at the California State Railroad Museum.

Papers are invited for publication and presentation on topics related to all types of automotive, marine, locomotive, off-highway, and industrial engines. Papers may address any aspect of the design, development or application of compression-ignition, spark-ignition, rotary, or reciprocating engines. Light-duty and heavy-duty engines, as well as large-bore I.C. engine systems for power generation and transportation propulsion are welcome.

Anticipated technical sessions span the range from fundamental research to practical in-use applications. Examples of topics include, but are not limited to, Advanced Engine Technologies, Turbochargers, Fuels and Combustion, Fuel Injection Sprays, Alternate Fuels, Emission reduction technologies, Instrumentation, Control and Monitoring, Engine Simulation and Diagnostics, Lubrication & Friction, Component dynamics, Wear, Materials, Engine After Treatment Systems, Engine Design and Modeling, Engine Efficiency Improvements, Engine Design, and Gas-Engine Systems Development. Engine manufacturers, engine consulting companies, and end-users are encouraged to participate.

All accepted papers that are accepted will be published in the Conference Proceedings, which will be in CD-ROMs available at the conference, and papers will be considered for the Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power. Exceptional written papers and presentations will be considered for ASME ICE Division Conference awards. ASME review and publication policies will apply. Please submit your 400-word (or less) text only abstract at the FTC 2006 website by May 20, 2006:
