Thank you & see you in 2023!

the 15th edition of our biannual conference, has been host in the island of Capri (Italy) from September 12th to September 15th, 2021.

We would like to thank all the attendees, authors, session organizers and members of the Organizing Committee for their continuous support and cooperation during these difficult months.

When we decided to keep the event as a "live conference" we knew we were going to deal with a lot of uncertainty and with the risk of possible postponement of the conference but we always believed that following the protocols and guidelines we would have been able to host our event as usual,in Capri.

It has been very emotional for us to see again our attendees in person and to be able to celebrate our event as usual. We were sure that with good efforts, cooperation and flexibility we would have been able to organize a successful conference and finally we are happy to say that we were right!

According to this positive result we are glad to announce that ICE2023 will be hosted from September 10th to September 14th, 2023 in Capri and we hope to see you all in two years to spend once again a nice time together.

SAENA cooperates with engineering schools to provide a link between education and industry. Its main mission is stimulating the technological and scientific progress in the fields of land, sea and airspace transportation.

For ICE2021, SAENA will be supported by FKFS, the Research Institute of Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Engines of Stuttgart ,Germany. FKFS was founded in 1930 as an independent foundation and it cooperates closely with the Institute for Automotive Engineering Stuttgart (IFS) at Stuttgart University. FKFS is nowadays a sought-after partner in the international automotive industry thanks to exceptional expertise unique range of highly-specialized test benches and self-developed measurement, testing and simulation methods.

Furthermore this year, for the first time, we will also cooperate with STEMS (Institute of Science and Technology in Energy and Sustainable Mobility), the brand new Institute powered by our institutional partner Istituto Motori-CNR of Naples (Italy), whom will join us, as usual, in the organization of our congress.
