The Institution’s International Conference on Turbochargers and Turbocharging returns to its in-person format in 2023 to address the latest advances, research and developments in turbocharging system designs and boosting solutions.
It will address current and novel turbocharging system choices and components with a renewed emphasis to address the challenges posed by emission regulations and market trends.
Bringing together the international automotive engineering community, the conference will once more provide an essential forum for all engineers, researchers, OEMs, suppliers and academics to present technical findings, share innovative solutions and make valuable new connections within this specialised field.
Don't miss this opportunity to join the conference to learn about the latest developments leading to enhanced performance and efficiency, increased durability and reduced emissions in line with meeting Net-Zero and global emissions targets.
Finally, all conference speakers and attendees are warmly invited to the exclusive drinks reception and networking dinner at the end of the first day of proceedings to review the day's presentations, continue discussions and build your network of contacts in the industry.
CONFERENCE TOPICS IN 2023 INCLUDE:
- Air management in powertrains: conventional, hybrids, fuel cells and novel configurations
- Alternate fuels and their needs in boosting (e.g. hydrogen, synthetic fuels)
- Electrification of turbochargers, compressors, and exhaust turbines
- Simulation and testing techniques, data analytics, including AI and digital twins
- Thermal management, waste heat recovery and expanders

COVID-19 GUIDANCE FOR ATTENDEES:
We continue to operate all of our events in accordance with the most up to date UK Government advice on Covid-19.
From 24 February 2022 the Government removed the last domestic restrictions associated with Covid-19 in England. People are no longer required to self-isolate even if they test positive for Covid-19. The UK Government has published its plan for living with Covid-19 on the basis that although the virus is still in circulation, a return to pre-pandemic life is now possible. It is therefore down to individuals to assess the risk of returning to ‘normal’ activities such as social mixing and attending events.
However, it is important to us that we continue to protect each other and to support this we request:
- That you do not attend IMechE events if you feel unwell, particularly if you have respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms
- That you do not attend IMechE events if you have tested positive or suspect that you may have Covid-19
- That you continue to maintain good respiratory and hand hygiene i.e. covering your mouth and nose if you feel the need to cough or sneeze, washing and/or sanitising hands regularly
CALL FOR PAPERS HAS ENDED:
For any queries about submitting your work, please contact the events team on +44 (0)20 7973 1251 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Following this deadline, the Organising Committee will select the abstracts they wish to invite to submit a full draft paper. The draft paper should not exceed 5000 words and will be required by Friday 2 December 2022.
