The Transformation of the Automotive Industry: 19th Stuttgart International Symposium "Automotive and Engine Technology"

The Stuttgart International Symposium is established as one of the most important discussion forums in the field of vehicle and engine development with about 900 participants // More than 100 presentations of this international event and the parallel technical exhibition combine proven solutions with innovative concepts // Focus topic: The Transformation of the Automotive Industry // As always, the FVV is represented with three presentations

The 19th Stuttgart International Symposium "Automotive and Engine Technology" will take place in Stuttgart from 19 – 20 March 2019.

The automotive industry is currently undergoing enormous and rapid changes. Demands upon research and development are constantly increasing, and new fields of research are arising as well. Both manufacturers and suppliers are developing new business models in order to remain competitive. The European Environment Ministers’ target to reduce vehicle CO2 emissions by a total of 35 per cent by 2030 (compared with the year 2020) highlights the necessity and urgency of a technological shift. Most discussions regarding potential solutions concern the electrification of powertrains and drives, but the use of renewable fuels (or synthetic fuels) is also on the agenda.

FVV Session: 20 March 2019 | 08h30 - 10h00 CET

Drives and emissions, autonomous driving and networking, disruptive vehicle architectures, driving dynamics control systems and thermal management: the automotive industry has plenty to talk about. Experts from science and industry will be discussing these topics and many more at the 19th Stuttgart International Symposium “Automotive and Engine Technology” from 19 – 20 March 2019 at the Haus der Wirtschaft. The latest technology, future concepts and new research results will be presented in sessions running in six parallel strands, with more than a hundred lectures. There will be a podium discussion on the topic “The transformation of the automotive industry” with prominent participants. The organisers have also been able to attract very high-profile speakers for the plenary lectures. There will be many opportunities for exchanging ideas; not only during the breaks and at the trade exhibition, but at the special evening event too.

The FKFS (Forschungsinstitut für Kraftfahrwesen und Fahrzeugmotoren Stuttgart) and the FVV are looking forward to your participation and wish you two highly-interesting days at the 19th StuttgartInternational Symposium!
