Internal Combustion Engine Symposium

Considering the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, “32nd Internal Combustion Engine Symposium” will be held as a hybrid event; a combination of “Live” face to face event and a “Virtual” online component. However, depending on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be held as an all online event.

The Internal Combustion Engine Symposium started in 1979 initially every one and a half year and became annual event in 1984. Two of them were held in Korea for internationalization. Now it is the 32nd and faces head wind of worldwide bad flue and increasing electrification of automobiles. This must be a kind of chance to think about and discuss how we can solve these historically difficult problems at Ota-city, the one of the historic origins of internal combustion engines production by Nakajima airplanes Co. now developed to SUBARU Co. This symposium has been taking enough time for discussion in each presentation and covers wide areas of research and developments such as hybrids and zero carbon emission engines. We will take so-called Hybrid method of symposium which enables us both on-site (face to face) and remote participation. We the executing committee members all look forward to seeing all of you together with the people in Ota-city.
