  • 21 & 22 May 2014


sia powertrain_rouen 2014

Dear colleagues,

The Compression Ignition Engine has undergonemajor technological evolutions in the last 20 years, with the introduction of numerous innovations in the market place. High pressure fuel injection, electronic control, exhaust gas recirculation and turbo-charging are all key technologies which have been launched whilst engine design and the materials used have also evolved. In more recent times particulate filters,NOx after-treatment and hybridization have begun to emerge.
Upcoming Light Duty Compression Ignition Engine regulations in Europe intend to include more transient testing in real urban driving conditions, which will require further development and understanding of how the Compression Ignition Engine can maintain its leading position with regards to fuel economy.

The Clean Compression Ignition Engine Conference intends to give powertrain developers and researchers the opportunity to obtain an overall picture of state-of-the-art technologies and look ahead to future tasks and challenges.
The next edition of the International Compression Ignition Engine Conference had been held on 21 & 22 May 2014 in Rouen, France. This was be the 26th International Conference and Exhibition organised by the powertrain section of the SIA. This unique event facilitates the exchange of technical information between scientists and engineers active in varying areas of Diesel powertrain technology.
The previous edition of the conference in 2012 was a great success:
> More than 40 presentations
> International representation with 330 participants
> 30 exhibiting companies
> Panel discussion with executive participants from the automotive industry
> Vehicle technology demonstrations
> Banquet in city of Rouen
> Visit to local vehicle manufacturing sites and research laboratories
> International press presence

Edition 2014 included an additional forum in the afternoon of 22 May, where students & industrial representatives will come together enabling the young engineers to obtain key information as they set-off on a career in the automotive industry
