15th International Conference on Engines & Vehicles


Capri, Napoli (Italy) September 12-16, 2021


ICE2021 is organized by SAENA, a section of SAE International, in cooperation FKFS (Research Institute of Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Engines Stuttgart- Germany) and STEMS (Institute of Science and Technology in Energy and Sustainable Mobility - Naples,Italy), the brand new Institute powered by our institutional partner IstitutoMotori-CNR of Naples (Italy).


Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts of 300 words or less for review by the General Committee.


Abstracts will be submitted on-line and managed by the SAE International.

Upon submission, the paper tracking number will be sent by email.

Paper acceptance will be based on organizer moderated peer-reviews of review-ready manuscript.

Authors should prepare their papers according to SAE International format.

For additional information, please contact ICE2021 Secretary by email and/or visit ICE2021 website
