Conference description:

The next Conference will be the 15th ISEC. Held every two or three years since its launch in 1982, the ISEC has received worldwide recognition as a major international venue addressing the most topical issues and novelties in the field of Stirling cycle machines.

The Conference brings together academia, industry and interested parties whose shared aim is to make the Stirling Engine an industrial and commercial success.

The ISEC also provides an opportunity for small, medium-sized and large companies to present their activities and projects to the international community.

This year, for the first time, the ISEC will be held in two separate sessions.

  • The first part will be an online Conference, where papers are presented and discussed on a dedicated website from 10th to 22nd September 2012.
  • The second part will be a two-day Conference of plenary meetings held at Dubrovnik’s IUC from 27th to 29th September 2012.
  • Papers submitted to the 15th ISEC will be published in the e-Proceedings of the Conference by "Università di Roma - Sapienza" (ISBN: 978-88-8326-019-3).

    The papers selected for the plenary meetings will be published in "Applied Energy - Elsevier" after a peer review to reward the best research efforts and investigations.
