Turbomachinery Workshop

From 1986, on the initiative of the former director of the Institute, prof. Jerzy Krzyżanowski, the Department managed to gather a large European scientific community around the subject of new tools for engineering and energy conversion of turbomachinery:

  • representatives of the Universities in Stuttgart, Dresden, Prague (Czech Republic), representatives of the Silesian University of Technology, Gdańsk University of Technology and the initiator - the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery of the Polish Academy of Sciences,
  • representatives of industry

This community has been operating for years as Workshop Turbomachinery (WT). WT are organized almost every year. Turbine Department of IMP PAN  organizes a workshop every 5 years on average, including:

  • 34-th Workshop Turbomachinery, Gdańsk,  September 14-16, 2022 - link
  • 30-th Jubilee Turbomachinery Workshop, September 14-16, 2016, Gdańsk
  • 25-th Jubilee Turbomachinery Workshop, Gdańsk-Krzeszna, September 19-22, 2011
  • 20-th Jubilee Turbomachinery Workshop, September 25-29, 2006, Gdańsk-Krzeszna
  • 15-th Seminar on Turbomachinery (15 Arbeitsgemeinschaft Turbomaschinen), September 28-30, 2000, Gdańsk-Krzeszna.


The conference follows the tradition of meetings of people who conduct scientific research and development activities in the field of turbomachinery: turbines, compressors and pumps, as well as in the area of modern power engineering technologies, energy storage, wind energy and flow modeling. The symposium is organized by two scientific centres:

  • Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery, Polish Academy of Sciences in Gdansk,
  • Institute of Turbomachinery, Lodz University of Technology.

Turbine Department organized the events:

  • 14th International Symposium SYMKOM 2020/2021 IMP2, October 20-22, 2021, Gdańsk - Link
  • 12th International Symposium SYMKOM 2016 IMP2, October 18-19, 2016, Gdańsk

Other seminars

  • Seminar/Summer School "CFD for Turbomachinery Applications", September 1-3, Gdańsk, Poland. Selected papers from this semminar were published in TASK Quarterly:
