11th International Munich Chassis Symposium plus 2020

In chassis development, the three aspects of safety, vehicle dynamics and driving comfort are at the top of the list of challenges to be faced. This becomes even more complex when the chassis is required to interact with assistance systems and other systems for fully automated driving. New demands are also created by the introduction of modern electric and electronic architectures. All these requirements must be met by the chassis along with its subsystems steering, brakes, tires and wheels.

The chassis will play a key role in the future of the automobile. End customers want a dynamic driving experience – without any compromise on safety. At the same time, automated and autonomous functions are generating higher demands for comfort. The future lies in platforms that can be combined as flexibly as possible. The aim is to optimize the interaction between chassis systems to achieve functional integration. plus, which is being held in June for the eleventh time, is a unique event throughout Europe that will bring together numerous leading experts in chassis systems, steering, brakes, and tires/wheels from all over the world for an industry-wide exchange of ideas and a transfer of knowledge. Renowned speakers from industry and research will discuss the very latest developments in the chassis, steering systems, brakes, and wheels/tires in four parallel strands of lectures.

You can also look forward to keynote lectures given by Masato Fujiyama (Toyota), Dr. Keiwan Kashi (Schaeffler Technologies), Dr. Thomas Kersten and Dr. Andreas Saathoff (Volkswagen), Benjamin Koller (TÜV SÜD) and Prof. Bernhard Schick (Kempten University of Applied Sciences) on the first day of the symposium. The keynote lectures presented by Dr. Wolfgang David (Ford) and Yousuke Sekino (Showa) on the second day promise further concentrated information.

One for all

Four congresses in one event

The International Munich Chassis Symposium is the key worldwide meeting place for the chassis community in the fields of the chassis, steering, brakes, and tires/wheels.

The 1st day will be taken up by the interdisciplinary section plus with two parallel sessions of lectures in the afternoon.

The symposium will focus on overriding issues relating to chassis systems and vehicle dynamics, before dividing up on the 2nd day into the following four parallel sections concentrating on the chassis, steering, brakes, and tires/wheels:


In the afternoon, the parallel sections will merge together again for the interdisciplinary section plus.

In 2020, the conference will focus on innovative chassis systems which improve the driving experience by offering greater comfort and dynamics. It will provide answers relating to the growing proportions of automated driving systems and electrified powertrains in the complete vehicle.

Participants can move freely between the four parallel sections at any time. The individual parallel sections scheduled for the second day –,,, – can be booked separately at a reduced registration fee.

For the whole duration of the event, the accompanying trade exhibition will allow you to gather information on innovative products and services offered in the field of chassis development.
