Calling all students and young engineers! IMECE 2021 Best Paper Contests. ABSTRACTS DUE MARCH 22

The International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE) is ASME's largest research and development conference focused primarily on mechanical engineering, but encompasses perspectives from many engineering disciplines. IMECE is THE place for you to present your technical research and expertise, while also learning from and connecting with thousands of your peer researchers on a global level.

The Virtual IMECE Technical Conference will feature robust conversations on technical content with all participants. Technical sessions are planned to consist of pre-recorded talks with live Q&A and discussion. Posters will allow for short introduction videos and Q&A. Additionally, there will be a variety of special technical events including live panels, roundtables, and special talks.

At IMECE you’ll experience stimulating innovation from basic discovery to translational application of new approaches and foster collaborations that engage stakeholders and partners not only from academia, but also from national laboratories, industry and government funding bodies. No other conference will provide you with more broad, but salient perspectives and knowledge-sharing on technical advances within mechanical engineering, than IMECE.
