In light of the recent inhumane terror attacks and the subsequent conflict in Israel, we have been closely monitoring the situation and assessing its impact on our scheduled events. Obviously, the safety and well-being of our participants are of paramount importance.

Following careful consideration by the organizing committees, it has been decided to postpone both the 20th Annual Israeli Symposium on Jet Engines and the 27th Biennial Symposium on Measuring Techniques in Turbomachinery. While making this decision was challenging, we are hopeful and look forward to rescheduling these symposia to early 2024, with the intent to still host them in Haifa, Israel. Updates on specific dates will be relayed as they become available.

For those who have committed to travel and accommodation, sincere apologies are extended for any resulting inconvenience. If necessary, please contact <admin.thl.ae@technion.ac.il> for assistance with any potential reimbursement issues associated with the hotels.

The commitment, contributions, and enthusiasm each participant brings to these events are deeply valued. Prioritize safety, and the hope remains to reconvene in Haifa in 2024.

Warm regards,

Combined event featuring

Annual Israeli Symposium on Jet Engines and Gas Turbines

Biennial International Symposium on Measuring Techniques in Turbomachinery

Continuing our annual tradition since 2001, the Jet Engine Laboratory at Technion has been proud to organize professional symposia and workshops within the fields of gas turbines. Through these events, we aim to strengthen existing scientific collaborations and foster new ones, with around 200 scientists and propulsion engineers from academia, industry, and various governmental branches attending.

This year, the 20th Annual Israeli Symposium on Jet Engines and Gas Turbines is set for November 14, 2023. Following this, we are privileged to host the 27th Biennial Symposium on Measuring Techniques in Turbomachinery on November 15-16, 2023. Both events will be held at the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Technion, located in Haifa, Israel. They are co-organized by the Department of Aerospace Engineering of Technion-IIT and are supported by Propulsion Branch IMOD, the Israeli Air Force, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd, and Israeli Aircraft Industries.

Spanning over three days, the activities will focus on diverse aspects of gas turbine-related research. The first day will be geared towards a broader audience, featuring invited lectures from commercial engine manufacturers such as General Electric, Honeywell, Pratt Whitney, and Solar Turbines, along with speakers from the local industry, governmental entities, and leading members of academia. In past years, we have been privileged to host esteemed guest lecturers from prestigious institutions like Purdue University, Virginia Tech, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Stuttgart, and the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, among others. Typically, we accommodate more than 40 lectures in parallel sessions.

During the second and third days, we will dedicate our time to the Turbomachinery Measurement Technique Symposium, a focused international gathering hosted in Haifa, Israel this year. As the main European meeting on the subject, the symposium enables leading experts to share cutting-edge experimental methods related to turbomachinery applications and typically attracts over 70 international contributions. Its central objective is to foster a forum for exchanging experiences in conducting turbomachine measurements, covering the progression of techniques used to study mainly aerothermal phenomena across various components like cascades, compressors, turbines, engines, and power plants.

    • Short Abstract Submission Deadline: October 8
    • Registration Deadline: October 15

Please register and consider contributing abstracts to both events separately:

20th Annual Israeli Symposium on Jet Engines and Gas Turbines – Registration is required prior to the deadline, but it is offered at no charge!

27th International Symposium on Turbomachinery Measurement Techniques – Employees of our sponsors are entitled to free registration if they register in advance. For all others, the registration terms and fees as stated on the website will apply.

We look forward to meeting with you once again in future events. In order to receive updates and news, please make sure to subscribe to the mailing list.
