The theme „Dual Fuel and Gas Engines – Their Impact on Application, Design, and Components“ gave attendees a chance to meet leading industry experts and exchange information with them. Furthermore, young engineers and students of the university and industry presented their papers. Speakers from international companies were invited to hold presentations on the topic of the seminar as well. At the end of the seminar the best presentation was rewarded with the CIMAC CASCADES Award. The day was divided into three lecture blocks with three lectures each. On the day before the Conference attendees took part in a tour of the Large Engines Competence Center (LEC) and the AVL, together with representative of the industry. Andreas Wimmer, CEO and Scientific Director of the LEC, was head of the first lecture block and closed the seminar officially after the awards ceremony.

CIMAC is the worldwide leading association for large engines, therefore it is a great success to hold their event in Graz. For us as a research institute it is very relevant to support young researchers and to get students from Styria interested in this topic.  -Andreas Wimmer, CEO LEC Ltd.
