Symposium Purpose

After the very positive response on the previous International Symposia on Modeling of Exhaust- Gas After-Treatment in September 2009, 2011 and 2013 in Bad Herrenalb, the fourth symposium will be held at the same location on September, 13th-15th 2015. The symposium will cover all relevant systems: Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC), Three-Way Catalysts, SCR-techniques, NOx Storages Catalysts (NSC), Particulate Filters, as well as control and related topics.

The symposium purpose is to support the exchange of state-of-the-art and novel modelling and simulation techniques, fundamental mechanistic studies, experimental modell validation and technical applications of modelling and simlutaion 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 plenary 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.
