15th ISEC coming soon

Established in 1982 on the initiative of Professor Graham Walker, the International Stirling Engine Conference (ISEC) convenes researchers, industry operators and enthusiasts from all over the world.
The Conference is organized by academics and researchers under the scientific supervision of Rome’s Università La Sapienza and Università Politecnica delle Marche, to present and review the latest technological and scientific advances in the field of the Sterling cycle and its applications with a view to enhancing the engine’s industrial and commercial success.

Ever since its invention by Rev. Robert Stirling in 1816, the Stirling engine has been fascinating researchers and engineers with the singular thermo-dynamic features of its cycle, which has theoretical yields equaling and even exceeding those of the Carnot engine. However, the greater construction simplicity and specific power of internal combustion engines have prevented its diffusion, effectively confining it to niche uses and cryogenic applications. Over the last few years the problems related to environmental pollution and dwindling fossil fuel stocks have revived interest in the Stirling engine, which being based on external combustion, can be powered by alternative energy sources such as sun and biomass, thus offering a viable technological solution for micro-cogeneration units or remote generation of electricity.

This year’s ISEC, the 15th Conference, will consist of two separate sessions. The first, from the 10th to the 22nd of September, will be exclusively online; contributions will be presented and discussed on a dedicated platform developed through the valuable collaboration of E-Campus Telematic University (www.uniecampus.co.uk). The second part, hosted by the InterUniversity Center (IUC) of Dubrovnik, Croatia, from September 27th to 29th, will be a traditional session where participants will be able to discuss in depth the best contributions presented to the online conference. The new formula will enable a large number of participants to take part in the online session from their own office. An ad hoc scientific committee will select the most interesting contributions for broader discussion in the second part of the Conference.

The ISEC has long been acknowledged as the main international venue for discussion and analysis of the novelties and the more complex aspects of Stirling machines. The 15th Conference will address the major issues in the Stirling engine field from design to its multiple applications, with emphasis on:
1. Thermo-dynamic simulation and CFD modeling;
2. Cogeneration applications;
3. Stirling-type refrigerators and heat pumps;
4. Applications powered by renewable energy sources;
5. New configurations;
6. Commercial opportunities;
7. Experimental and environmental problems.

The International Stirling Engine Council hopes that the 15th Conference will attract strong interest in the latest topics and the most exciting novelties in the world of the Stirling engine. For information visit www.stirlinginternational.org
