Review of the 9th Conference on Compressors and their Systems September 2015

The 9th International Conference, held in the Mermaid Conference Centre in the City of London, attracted a record number of participants. Seventy-eight technical papers were selected and presented to 195 delegates from 29 countries. Organised by City University London in conjunction with Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Refrigeration, the tone of the Conference was set by keynote speakers on Compressor Lubrication and on Compressor Trends in the Chinese Petrochemical and Natural Gas Industry. The event was preceded by the 2nd Forum on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in Rotary Positive Displacement Machines, attended by forty-three participants, from 20 countries. The welcome reception was dedicated to celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Centre for Positive Displacement Compressors Technology (CPDCT) at City. Additionally the Conference Dinner and a River Cruise provided further networking opportunities.
Feedback from delegates was very positive, and with many more developments forecast, the 10th conference planned for 2017, 10th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems, is expected to attract an even larger gathering.
