Dear Colleagues and Partners,

The organizers of the 30th CIMAC World Congress on Combustion Engines sincerely invite you to submit your proposals in the fields of marine, power generation and locomotive engine research & development covering state of-the-art technologies as well as the application of such engines and systems. The topic streams for the event are detailed in the 'Call for Papers' below. 

The Congress takes us this time to Busan, South Korea, from June 12-16, 2023. South Korea is the leading ship manufacturer worldwide, with its shipbuilding industry maintaining the top position in the global market for a third consecutive year. 

As our industry is facing enormous challenges, a holistic technical exchange on the state of affairs is imperative. Not to mention the end-user’s perspective to complete the loop of providing feedback to technology solutions from the field for lessons to be learned and ideas for future developments.

We are looking forward to receiving your contribution and seeing you at the CIMAC Congress 2023 in Busan where the Congress will provide a perfect opportunity to meet manufacturers, colleagues, and customers from the entire industry around the world.
