THIESEL 2018 calls for good quality papers from both Industry and Academia, describing the most recent developments and latest innovations relative to thermo-and fluid dynamic processes in direct injection engines.

The Conference will be centred on experimental and theoretical work topics, which include:

·     Direct Injection Engines & Environment

·     Experimental Techniques

·     Engine Modelling

·     New Concepts


with specific focus on:

·     Air Management Processes

·      Thermal Management

·     Turbo-charging

·      Noise Control

·     DI Fuel Sprays

·      Emission Control Strategies

·     Combustion & Pollutant Formation

·      After-treatment Techniques


Abstracts of about 300 words including the objectives of the paper, the methodology used, some preliminary results if available and the main conclusions should be submitted through the website authors’ area (, icon THIESEL).

Women researchers and industrialists are highly encouraged to submit an abstract of their work, as we would like to see an increase of female participation to the conference.

A selection of the best papers to be presented at the conference will be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Engine Research.

After the preliminary selection, abstracts not accepted as full papers may be presented for the poster session. The authors of accepted posters may present a three-pages abstract for publication in the Conference Proceedings.
