Call for Abstracts

The call for abstracts is now closed.

With the theme of Smart e-Mobility, our call for abstracts focuses on the knowledge and insight needed to bring together technology advancements and market uptake to accelerate mass market adoption of electric vehicles.

For all modes of transportation – individual transportation, fleets, public transit and public transportation, specialized and commercial vehicles – EV2017VÉ solicits the presentation of your latest research results, technical developments, demonstration projects, practical and conclusive experiences, innovative business models, public policies, and strategies.
