Please join us for the 2011 Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Symposium taking place on May 24 - 25, 2011 at the University of Colorado in Boulder at the foot of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Submit an Abstract by January 2, 2011 and individuals presenting research get a discount off the cost of registration.

Abstracts should be limited to 500 words and the contents of the abstract must include the objectives of the study/investigation and the methodology used. It should also briefly describe the main findings and their potential applications. Sufficient information should be included for an independent reviewer to determine its suitability for the symposium. After acceptance of the abstract, authors will be asked to submit a 3 - 5 page paper providing full documentation and present their work at the symposium. Papers and presentations will be archived on the symposium website and made available to symposium attendees.

Symposium registration is also open. Register Now to take advantage of the Early Bird Rate and attendance is limited to the first 150 people who register.

Symposium Summary

The Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Symposium is an academic workshop organized to advance supercritical CO2 power cycle technology. Every two years researchers, industry partners, and end users meet to learn about advancements in the field; discuss priorities; and establish a critical path for technology development. The first symposium was held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2007 and the second was held at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2009.
Starting in 2011, attendees will have online access to technical papers presented during the symposium and access to the Symposium LinkedIn Group. The goal is to facilitate year-round collaboration and accelerate advancements in the field. Additionally, the symposium is an opportunity to network with top researchers and industry partners within the field. Registration includes catered lunches at CU Boulder's new Center for Community and a Western style barbecue dinner on Tuesday evening.

Symposium Format

Keynote presentations will address big picture development priorities and critical path issues. Technical sessions will address system concepts and development, system modeling and control, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, materials, turbomachinery, electrical generators, and testing. And there will be networking opportunities during breaks and meals.

Thank you for your interest in the 2011 Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Symposium and we hope to see you there.
