the 15th edition of our biannual conference, that will take place in the island of Capri (Italy) from September 12th to September 16th, 2021.
ICE CONFERENCE was created almost 30 years ago, with the aim to encourage the exchange of scientific and practical knowledge in the main theme of the vehicle and it has always been imagined as a forum to promote the cooperation between industry, research laboratories and universities.
On 2019’s edition we collected a total of 127 institutions of the automotive sector, which have been represented at the conference by: 64 universities, 42 companies, 21 research centers /laboratories / associations. We registered a "new record" of 367 participants coming from 21 countries from all over the world and this year we expect to celebrate our 15th edition following this positive trend.
We believe and we strongly hope that in September 2021, this emergency will be ended and no more restrictions will be in effect, so we can celebrate together the event in Capri, as usual. On the other hand, we learned from this pandemic, that it makes the future very unpredictable and so we are aware that a "live event" might not be possible.
For this reason, we confirm you that in case we can’t organize the conference in person, we are ready to switch it to digital. In this case all the papers presented will be valid and all the participants will be informed in due time to confirm their attendance.
We are living an exceptional situation and so exceptional solutions have to provided in order to adapt ourselves to the challenges that this pandemic is giving us daily.
We are sure that with good effort, cooperation and flexibility we will be able to organize a successful conference that we hope can be “real & live” but that we will “enjoy” also if it will be digital.

The conference is organized by SAENA , the first SAE International section in Italy, which has currently more than 600 members. 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.
ICE2021 is a scientific gathering designed to promote the cooperation between industry, research laboratories and universities.
