Paper Submission

The 5th IFAC Conference on Engine and Powertrain Control, Simulation and Modeling will be held in Changchun, China. Research achievements on engine and powertrain control, simulation and modeling in recent years will be displayed and concluded on the conference. In the meantime, the major problems in science, technology and policy that we may face in the future will be explored.

For paper length we suggest that you aim for traditional 6 pages conference papers and 2 pages for industrial papers. Templates are available for LaTeX, and Office,from the papercept-site and support for the templates can be found. More details will be made available as we come closer to the event.

Paper Submission is extended to April 18, 2018.(Final Extension)                                                  

Topics of interest will be focused on, but not limited to:   

1. System modeling and simulation frameworks for engine and powertrain control design, validation and calibration.  

2. Model-based control, estimation and diagnostics for the new generations of CI and SI engines and their exhaust gas aftertreatment.  

3.  Modeling, optimization and control for hybrid and electrified vehicles and their components.  

4.  Thermal management for next generation vehicles.  

5.  Control design for 2WD, 4WD and high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles.  

6. Applications of intelligent technologies to vehicle powertrains for supervision, energy management and diagnostics type.
