AVL Powertrain UK and The Energy Storage Research Network (ESRN) managed by Imperial College London are hosting the sixth Future Powertrain Conference (FPC2019): a two-day event bringing together industry and academic experts from the powertrain community to present and discuss solutions to the challenges facing the UK automotive industry over the next decade.
We are pleased to announce that the call for abstracts for this conference is now open. We ask PhD students, early career researchers, researchers from academia and industry, and senior engineers & scientists to respond. The Scientific Advisory Board will be looking for a balance between industrial & academic, and experienced & newcomers, and are particularly looking for speakers who can offer either a unique or new insight that could significantly affect either their field or the automotive industry as a whole, or who alongside presenting their work can also offer a broad perspective for the next ten years based upon significant experience. When choosing speakers our primary goal will be to offer ideas to the audience which will stimulate interesting discussions.
Registration for the conference will open shortly. We are pleased to announce that prices continue to remain at their 2017 level, at £150 for the combined two-day conference and evening networking event or £80 for students. A further 50% discount is available for students presenting posters, and substantial prizes will be awarded to encourage participation. Registration fees do not include accommodation or travel costs, which must be booked independently. Information on suitable local accommodation and travel advice will be made available on the conference website in due course.
Potential exhibitors are asked to email Lynda@futurepowertrains.co.uk for more information.
