Heavy-Duty, On- and Off-Highway Engines 2024

12-11-2024 – 13-11-2024 – Eisenach, Germany

Call for Papers

The heavy-duty segment is highly dependent on sustainable energy converters. However, the variety of different uses is significantly greater than for private transportation, as it includes on- and off-road applications, aviation, and shipping – and each application must be cost-effective. This also means that there is a large bandwidth of technical solutions that are necessary. For long-haul and off-highway applications, there is currently no real alternative to internal combustion engines. The big challenge is how to make these viable for the future.

At this MTZ conference, engine developers and designers of commercial vehicles, mobile machines, and marine and stationary equipment will provide information on the very latest developments. The 19th conference will be supplemented by a tour of the Bell Equipment (Deutschland) GmbH and Emitec Technologies GmbH plants.

On behalf of the Scientific Advisory Board, I cordially invite you to present the latest research and development results of your company/institute. Details for your presentation submission can be found in this Call for Papers. We are looking forward to your participation.

After the conference, your paper will be published as part of the conference proceedings at Springer Vieweg and on the online platforms Springer Link and Springer Professional.

On behalf of the Scientific Advisory Board
