PEMS Conference

PEMS 2021
While we would like to remain optimistic about the COVID-19 pandemic, we also want to make the best decisions for our community, UCR, and the guests attending the PEMS 2020 Conference. Due to the level of uncertainty still surrounding the pandemic and the PEMS timeframe, we have canceled the PEMS 2020 Conference that was rescheduled for August 27th & 28th. 
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we certainly sympathize with the disappointment of having to cancel this year's conference. In doing so, however, we remain committed to only producing the best results for  UC Riverside, CE-CERT, our sponsors, and our attendees.
If you registered for this year's conference and did not receive your e-mail notice, please notify Jill Barber at 


We believe that it is most important to continue with PEMS mission: to explore the most pressing questions surrounding PEMS. Therefore, we are immediately transitioning into planning for next year's conference on March 11th & 12th, 2021. We hope that any speakers accepted to speak at this year's conference choose to resubmit their work for consideration for the 2021 PEMS Conference. 
The Portable Emission Measurement System (PEMS) annual conference gathers leaders and top researchers from industry, government and academia to discuss the application and significance of PEMS in emission and fuels research. The theme of this year’s conference is "From the Laboratory to the Real World: Understanding Community Impacts".  Topics covered often include the latest developments in compliant and non-compliant PEMS; the benefits of portable activity monitoring systems (PAMS) and prediction of in-use emissions; and new developments for on-road measurements from an international perspective, such as Real Driving Emissions. The International PEMS Conference will continue to explore the most pressing questions surrounding PEMS, cultivate innovative technology, and begin development of the next generation of on-board sensors, analysis, and reporting algorithms.
