IC Engine Division

The mission of the ASME Internal Combustion (IC) Engine Division is to promote, encourage, and recognize the advance of art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering in the field of IC Engines. The IC Engines Division strives to be an information resource by providing a forum for the documentation, worldwide dissemination, and recognition of the technical achievements and ideas relating to internal combustion engines.

ICEF Conference

The ICEF conference is an annual event with the objective to promote understanding and development, design, manufacture, and application of reciprocating internal combustion engines. These include compression ignition, spark ignition and other advanced engines used in mobile and stationary applications. Topics of presented technical papers range from theoretical subject areas like stress analysis, vibration, control theory, and combustion to practical application and maintenance of stationary, marine, automotive, and heavy mobile units. Turbocharging, lubrication, fuel injection, cooling, instrumentation, control, emissions and power cost data are also covered.

Previous ICEF conferences have been held in: San Diego, CA (ICEF2018); Seattle, WA (ICEF2017); Greenville, SC (ICEF2016); Houston, TX (ICEF2015); Columbus, IN (ICEF2014); Dearborn, MI (ICEF2013); Vancouver, BC (ICEF2012) and Morgantown, WV (ICEF2011).


ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 140,000 members in 151 countries.

For more than 100 years, ASME has successfully enhanced performance and safety worldwide through its renowned codes and standards, conformity assessment programs, training courses, and journals.

ASME also produces nearly 40 international conferences. These industry-leading events feature advanced research and technical content spanning a range of industries impacted by mechanical engineering, including energy production, energy sources, advanced manufacturing, and engineering sciences. View all ASME Conferences
