Each year, the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE), the world’s largest interdisciplinary mechanical engineering conference, provides engineers with a venue to present work that has the potential to solve critical, real-world challenges in health care, transportation, space exploration, product design, manufacturing and many other fields. Mechanical engineers who are interested in presenting a technical paper or poster at IMECE 2017, which will take place from Nov. 3 to 9 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla., must submit their abstracts by March 6.
This year’s IMECE technical program will encompass 20 tracks focusing on a variety of engineering areas including advanced manufacturing; energy; biomedical and biotechnology engineering; emerging technologies; advances in aerospace technology; education and globalization; transportation systems; micro- and nanosystems engineering and packaging; and acoustics, vibration, and wave propagation.
Other topics to be covered during the conference’s technical sessions will include fluids engineering; dynamics, vibration and control; safety engineering and risk analysis; materials; heat transfer and thermal engineering; mechanics of solids, structures and fluids; systems, design and complexity; and nondestructive evaluation (NDE), structural health monitoring and damage prognosis.
Abstracts must be submitted online at by March 6. Any abstracts received after that date will not be accepted. Authors will be notified of whether their abstracts have been accepted by March 13. To submit an abstract or to review the submission requirements, visit the IMECE page on ASME.org at go.asme.org/IMECE.
