Every two years, the ERC organizes and hosts a symposium that focuses on special topics that are current and relevant to people involved in the transportation and combustion fields. Presentations are given by a range of experts providing perspectives on technical, strategic planning, policy and regulatory issues. The meetings have traditionally been well attended with 100-150 people from engine, automotive, truck, and energy companies.
Registration for the 2022 symposium is now open!

2022 Low Net-GHG Fuel and Engine Technologies
June 15-16th, 2022
The University of Wisconsin Madison Engine Research Center (ERC) invites you to join us for the 2022 ERC Symposium titled “Low Net-GHG Fuel and Engine Technologies”. The symposium will focus on three areas: ‘Low-GHG Fuels’, ‘Engine/System Technologies’, and ‘Energy, Economic, and Lifecycle Analysis’.
- Learn what low carbon fuels are likely to be used in current and future engines around the world.
- Hear about the latest efficiency-boosting combustion and engine system technologies.
- Discover where research on fuel efficiency and emissions aftertreatment is headed.
- Network with leading researchers, technologists, and design engineers.
The 2022 ERC symposium is an in-person event. All necessary precautions will be taken to ensure safety following UW-Madison COVID-19 policies. We understand that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic introduces uncertainty in planning travel to events. If you are unable to attend in person, we will have a virtual option available.
A draft agenda is available.
Includes lunch both days and evening banquet 6/15
|Early registration (by May 13th)||$349|
|Student Fee (by May 13th)||$149||Contact UW Registration with your ID|
