Conference & Technical Program


Emailed abstract acceptance notifications were sent to the submitting/primary authors on Monday, March 2, 2015.  Session assignment information will be sent to submitting/primary authors mid April, 2015.

NOTE: The CEC/ICMC 2015 Conference Organizers occasionally need to make changes to the program. We urge you to check the schedule often, especially close to the conference, for last minute changes.

If you need to modify or withdraw your abstract, please submit your request to Centennial Conferences. Efforts will be made to fill gaps in the program left by withdrawn presentations. You will be notified by e-mail about any modifications to the program that affect the placement of your presentation.

As part of this year’s ICMC program, there will be an Invited Panel Session on the topic of Superconducting Wind Turbines, Rotating Machines, and Materials. The focus will be on the cryogenic materials aspects of these rotating superconducting machines. The Invited Panel session will be in two sequential sessions on Wednesday afternoon, following that morning’s plenary talk on superconducting machines for electric aircraft. The panel includes an international list of speakers representing industrial, laboratory, and university perspectives. The panel is charged with describing the potential for future developments, and well as challenges and opportunities in this area. After a slate of talks, on open forum panel discussion will be moderated. We encourage those with questions for the panel to submit them to Tim Haugan or Mike Sumption, or just bring them on the day.
