8th International Engine Congress 2021

Meeting Place for the Engine Community | Virtual Event

23-02-2021 – 24-02-2021 – Virtually via live stream

Meeting Place for the Engine Community | Virtual Event

8th International Engine Congress 2021

Due to the current situation created by Covid-19, the International Engine Congress will take place as a virtual event this year.

The realization that the electrification of automotive drivetrains can only develop in an evolutionary manner has ensured that internal combustion engines continue to hold the pole position in the context of low-emissions mobility. The "International Engine Congress" focuses not only on approaching the internal combustion engine comprehensively and systematically, but also on drivetrain electrification. By closely integrating passenger-car and commercial-vehicle engine technologies, the congress promotes the exchange of best practices. A dedicated series of talks addressing alternative fuels round out the content. 

Covid-19 has changed our world and our lives at a rate that we never thought possible. Our sensitivity towards our fellow human beings, the natural world, and our environment has increased. Our society must focus more than ever before on meeting the Paris climate protection targets.

National and international markets require an approach that is open to all technologies in order to fulfi ll mobility and transport needs. Electrified powertrains and effi cient passenger car and commercial vehicle engines together with new fuels as part of an integrated system are key technologies for CO2-neutral individual mobility with low emissions.

For that reason, in 2021 the International Engine Congress, with its globally unique event format, will continue its systematic examination of the complete system of internal combustion engines and innovative fuels that has been a trademark for six years now.

Stay abreast of current trends and benefi t from a lead in knowledge!

  • You can expect international speakers as well as top-level presentations and panel discussions

  • The congress is a great opportunity to “network“ directly via our EventApp with the 1:1 live chat with participants, exhibitors and sponsors

  • The trade exhibition, held in parallel, provides ample information about innovative products and services in the fi eld of combustion engine development

We look forward to your participation.

Participate virtually via live stream

The streaming package includes all keynote, impulse, and plenary presentations as well as the panel discussion and all presentations of the parallel sessions “passenger car engine technology”, “commercial vehicle engine technology” and “innovative fuels”.

Choose the live stream in the registration form at a price of EUR 795.00 plus VAT and experience the lectures corona-safe from your office.


This event is primarily aimed at engineers and technicians in the industry or persons involved in research and teaching who are engaged in the optimization of the traditional development areas of the combustion engine or the advancement of procedures and systems to produce conventional or renewable fuels and lubricants. The lectures will be equally attractive for chemists and biologists who work in this industry. The focus will be on both Diesel and spark-ignition engines (gasoline/gas) for passenger and commercial vehicles as well as off-highway applications.

ATZlive conferences in times of Corona

In order to ensure that the ATZlive conferences are safe and successful for all participants, even in times of Corona, we have drawn up a wide-ranging hygiene protection concept and are making detailed arrangements with the event partners.

The hygiene protection concept is based on the SARS-CoV-2 industrial safety standard of the German federal government and on the official requirements, which can vary from state to state.Of course, we will provide sufficient protective measures on site and adhere to a concept for contactless check-in, seating with a safe distance, keeping a distance during breaks and catering, disinfection facilities, etc.

If you would prefer to participate virtually in the event for health reasons or due to travel restrictions, until mid of 2021 we will offer you a live stream with Q&A function, 1:1 video chat with participants and other useful functions in parallel.

We are adapting to the current pandemic situation. If a real meeting at the conference date is not possible, you can experience the entire conference in our virtual conference module.
