Opening of the CIMAC World Congress in one year


Every 3 years, the large engines sector meets during the CIMAC World Congress, CIMAC, the global association of the combustion engine industry, says in a press release. A year from now, it will be Congress time again. The call for papers has been announced. All interested stakeholders are invited to submit their proposals to the technical program of the congress.

Congress is a unique opportunity to keep abreast of what is happening in the internal combustion engine industry. This is where experts from all over the world meet, gather information, discuss, research solutions and set standards.

In fact, next year in Busan, the Congress will be held for the 30th time already. An impressive achievement, especially considering the number of participants: more than 800 participants, exhibitors and speakers from all parts of the world came to Vancouver in 2019.

From June 13 to 17, 2022, Busan will welcome them all: engine manufacturers, equipment manufacturers, universities & research institutes, oil companies, shipping companies, power plant operators, classification societies, railway and locomotive companies, legislators, they will all be there. “There is simply no better place to learn about the latest developments in the large engine industry than at the CIMAC Congress. This is not only my opinion, but of course also the opinion of the many experts who come to the Congress each time ”, says Christoph Rofka (ABB Turbo Systems), Vice-President Communication of CIMAC. “When CIMAC was founded in 1951, the aim was to establish an international organization to discuss and promote technical and scientific knowledge in the area of ​​large engine technology. It was perfectly done, I would say, ”adds Rofka. He insists on the collaborative approach of CIMAC. “Fortunately, collaboration is in the genes of our association. When it comes to the most demanding global challenges like GHG reduction, I have no doubts, this is the only approach that will succeed.

In fact, the general theme of climate protection will play a prominent role at next year’s Congress. This is also reflected in the technical program of the CIMAC Congress, where technical, environmental and regulatory trends, developments, opportunities and challenges are discussed. This is the heart of the event, and the “Call for Papers” and technical program proposals reveal where the discussions are heading.

This time, the program will have 4 main titles: “Intelligent electrical systems”, “Towards zero emissions”, “Proven technologies” and “Fundamental research”. “It is difficult to sum up in a few words all the richness of the program, which takes place over a total of five days. Overall, Congress will address virtually all of the issues and challenges associated with the large engine industry. These are as much about major solutions and new developments as they are about constant optimization and persistent detailed improvements with ideas that, taken together, can lead to major changes, ”says Rofka. The call for papers is now available on the CIMAC Congress website –
