9th International Engine Congress 2022
22-02-2022 – 23-02-2022 – Baden-Baden, Germany
Combustion engines and fossil fuels, with their wide availability and their specifically high energy density, have made it possible to achieve the high-volume and cost-efficient transportation of people and goods throughout the world on land, on water, and in the air. Individual mobility in particular plays a crucial role in affluence, prosperity, and freedom in our states and societies. Conversely, since the beginning of industrialization, continuously increasing energy conversion processes involving the combustion of fossil fuels have led to a rise in pollutant emissions and a disproportionate increase in the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere, which is said to play a key role in the rise in mean global temperature. The international community has made a binding agreement to limit this further rise in temperature to well below
2 °C. It is clear that urgent action is required, and for that reason many countries have decided on ambitious and technology-changing political strategies, accompanied by significant changes in awareness in both society and industry.
Does this ongoing and necessary abandonment of fossil fuels inevitably mean the end of the internal combustion engine in cars and commercial vehicles, as is currently being discussed more and more intensely in parts of our society, politics, and industry? We want to focus on this question at the 9th International Engine Congress, where we will present the latest findings from science and research and from the automotive sector, the oil industry, and politics.
What contribution will future internal combustion engines make and what technological solutions will be available to meet the global energy consumption and emissions targets set for passenger cars and commercial vehicles by 2030? How will the industrialization of carbon-neutral fuels, including hydrogen, progress and contribute to CO2-neutral road traffic in real terms and with regard to legislation and how will cross-sector, life cycle-related assessments be incorporated?
This Call for Papers provides information on the main subjects addressed at the Congress as well as details on submitting a paper.
We look forward to your proposals and to further discussions with you.
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.
