Medical implants, jet engines, and lithium-ion batteries. These are just a few advances in mechanical engineering that require a mix of innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration. At ASME, we can trace innovations such as these back to 1880, when the very first proceedings of the 1st New York Meeting took place at what we now call the International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition (IMECE). Submit your research by March 9 to IMECE and continue to create history with us in Houston.

Submit Your Abstract by March 9
As the largest interdisciplinary collaboration for mechanical engineering, you need to present your research at IMECE. Submit an abstract to present your paper to more than 4,000 attendees from 75+ countries representing more than 20 mechanical engineering disciplines. Include your research in this cross-disciplinary mix to help shape the technical content of the meeting and actively participate in the dialogue.

Technical Program Topics Include:

Advances in Aerospace Technology

Advanced Manufacturing

Biomedical & Biotechnology Engineering

Dynamics, Vibration, and Control

Education and Globalization

Emerging Technologies Energy

Safety Engineering and Risk Analysis

Fluids Engineering Systems & Technology

Heat Transfer and Thermal Engineering

Materials: Genetics to Structures

Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Fluids

Micro- and Nano-Systems Engineering and Packaging

Systems, Design, and Complexity

Transportation Systems

Vibration, Acoustics & Wave Propagation

Advances in Multidisciplinary Engineering

Submission Guidelines
Abstracts must be submitted online by Monday, March 9. Please visit the "Submit Abstract" section of the IMECE website to review the updated submission requirements. Also, please ensure that your submission represents either the first publication of material or the first publication of an original compilation of information from a number of sources as specifically noted by footnotes and/or bibliography. Your submission should not be similar to other work submitted to, or under consideration by, other organizations and/or journals.
