November 4-5, 2015

Shanghai, China

Crowne Plaza Century Park Shanghai


This forum will present and discuss the latest breakthroughs in both Heavy Duty and Light Duty regarding lightweight materials, cutting edge adaptive applications of energy efficiency and emission reduction from Regulatory Bodies, OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, universities and research institutions, universities, and research institutions. The topics we are looking to address at this forum include:

Session Description

Regulations and resulting standards for reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiencies are creating a need for OEMs to develop lighter vehicles to achieve these requirements. This Forum has been designed to provide automobile manufacturers and suppliers with the latest advances in manufacturing strategies, design and materials selection strategies to promote lighter weight, fuel efficient vehicles without sacrificing safety or performance.

High Efficiency Combustion Systems

Overall, the program will examine several technological advances required to maximize efficiency, including:
  • Advanced, low-temperature combustion techniques
  • Improved understanding and modeling of heat loss mechanisms
  • Electrification and intelligent control of accessory loads
  • Possible redesign of mechanical systems (e.g., variable stroke for fully expanded cycles)
  • High-efficiency turbo-machinery to extract exhaust energy and provide boost"

Emissions Reduction
China is determined to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and boost fuel efficiency with manufacturing technologies without compromising safety, performance, reliability and cost. Session topics include:
