13th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems

  • marimac 

This 3-day conference organised by the Centre for Compressors Technology at City, University of London provides a forum for developments in air, gas and refrigeration compressors, vacuum pumps and expanders. This event will take place 11 to 13 September 2023.

The programme will be more cohesive this year by the inclusion of industry sessions on high-importance topics in addition to the traditional keynote addresses, research and technical papers, podium papers and discussions. This will provide a platform to identify current challenges and provide the essential content and direction to shape future research.

The International Conference on Compressors and their Systems series began in 1999 as a result of industrial consultation and the need for academic collaboration. At the time the conference was organised by the Fluid Machinery Group of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) with support from Holroyd.

From 2009 the Centre for Compressor Technology at City, University of London took over its management and the Conference is now one of the main conventions, taking place biennially in the UK, becoming world-renowned for its place in industry and academia to gather and discuss a broad range of topical issues related to compressors and compression systems.

The IMechE remains a longstanding partner, along with the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), and the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR).

The Conference has three committees:

  • Organising committee
  • International liaison committee
  • Programme and scientific review committee

The Conference is chaired by Prof Ahmed Kovacevic and is steered and organised by the organising committee which consists of staff from the Centre for Compressor Technology, the events team at City, University of London, senior representatives from partner institutes and representatives of the platinum and gold sponsors.

The international liaison committee is a consortium of eminent members from industry and academia who principally advise the organising committee on trends and topics in the compression industry which would be of interest to the conference delegates. They also promote the conference in their parts of the world.

The programme and scientific review committee, chaired by Dr Matthew Read, is integral to the conference. Its function is to ensure we have an outstanding programme and that the highest quality of research papers are presented at the Conference.

Since 2012, the main conference is preceded by a two-day short course and forum on CFD in rotary positive displacement machines, led by Dr Sham Rane.

This year’s conference theme is, “Compressors and Expanders in Future Energy Systems”.

Roleplayers are now invited to submit abstracts for the 13th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems taking place from 11 to 13 September 2023. Organisers invite papers related to all types of compressors, expanders and their systems including but not limited to: reciprocating, diaphragm, turbo, axial, scroll, screw, vane, rotary and all other types of compressors and expanders.
