The 2010 Fall Technical Conference of the ASME Internal Combustion Engine Division will be held in San Antonio, TX, United States, on September 12-15, 2010. In addition to a two-day technical program, the conference participants will have the opportunity to tour either the San Antonio Toyota Tundra Plant or two Southwest Research Institute Technical Divisions: Engine, Emissions and Vehicle Research; and Fuels and Lubricants Research.

Papers are invited for publication and presentation on all topics related to automotive, marine, locomotive, off-highway, and industrial internal combustion engines. Papers may address any aspect of the design, development or application of compression-ignition, spark-ignition, rotary, or reciprocating engines. Light-duty and heavy-duty engines, as well as large-bore internal combustion engine systems for power generation and transportation propulsion are welcome.

It is anticipated that technical sessions will span the wide range from fundamental research to practical in-use applications. Examples of topics include, but are not limited to, Engine Design, Advanced Engine Technologies, Fuels and Combustion, Instrumentation & Controls, Lubrication & Friction, Environment and End User Applications. Papers dealing with timely subjects such as MY 2010 on-highway diesel engines, Tier III locomotives, low temperature combustion, biofuels, emissions control systems, as well as instrumentation and control strategies to meet future emission standards are particularly encouraged.

Authors of all accepted papers are expected to present at the conference. Papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings on CD-ROM. Papers may also be submitted for publication in the Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power. Exceptional written papers and presentations will be considered for ASME ICE Division Conference awards. ASME review and publication policies will apply. The conference website, www.asmeconferences.org/ICEF2010/, will be activated shortly to accept 400-word (or less) abstracts in text format. The abstracts are due by January 29, 2010.
