13th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems

11th – 13th September 2023

13th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems

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, expanders. 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.

13th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems and the CFD short course/forum is scheduled to be run as an in-person event.

Background

The International Conference on Compressors and their Systems series began in 1999 as a result of industrial consultation and 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 the highest quality of research papers are presented at the Conference.

Since 2012, the main conference is preceded by a two-day Short Course & Forum on CFD in rotary positive displacement machines, led by Dr Sham Rane.

Sponsorship options

The International Conference on Compressors and their Systems attracts a highly engaged and influential international audience of professionals from markets related to compressors and their systems.

The Conference is a unique platform where professionals from industry and academia with technical and commercial backgrounds convene to discuss developments in air, gas & refrigeration compressors, vacuum pumps, expanders, related systems and components. This allows our sponsors the prospect of reaching a wider audience.

We offer different sponsorship options to align with your objectives; giving you the maximum opportunity of exposure at different parts of the Conference including the main conference sessions and social events.

We value strong, ongoing relationships with each of our sponsors and work closely with them to ensure their individual needs are met. Respected names in the compressor industry regularly support our Conference and have gained valuable exposure.

This conference will cover

  • Technology developments

  • Energy efficiency and carbon footprint

  • Safety, sustainability and environmental impact

  • Numerical and experimental modelling, analysis and testing

  • Design for ‘end of life’ and sustainable manufacture

  • Novel applications

  • Operation, use of sustainable operating fluids, maintenance and reliability

  • System integration and behaviour

  • Upgrades and refurbishment

  • Education and professional development.

Industry Sessions

Industry sessions of non-technical nature will be included throughout the conference in order to make the whole programme more cohesive.

These sessions will give representatives from the industry an opportunity to describe how their companies are responding to the ever-changing market demands and technological advances. This is a platform to frame current challenges, and provide the essential context and direction to shape future research. We invite industrial leaders to submit their proposed presentations by the same deadlines set for technical papers.

Short Course

The conference will be preceded by a Short Course and Forum on Computation Fluid Dynamics in Rotary Positive Displacement Machines, taking place on 9th – 10th September 2023.
