Symposium Purpose

After the very positive response on the first International Symposium on Modeling of Exhaust- Gas After-Treatment in September 2009 in Bad Herrenalb, the second symposium will be held at the same location on September, 19-20, 2011. The symposium will cover all relevant systems: Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC), Three-Way Catalysts, SCR-techniques, NOx Storages Catalysts (NSC), and Particulate Filters. The symposium purpose is to support the exchange of state-of-the-art modelling and simulation techniques and new approaches among researchers, scientists, and engineers from industry and academia. The location, program, and low conference fee is set up to boost open discussions and new collaborations.
Introductory lectures will provide the newcomer to the field with an overview of the state of the art.  Contributed presentations and posters will provide the experts with a platform to discuss current development directions and  most urgent open problems.
