Call for Papers

Even in the year 2050, all cars will still have four wheels and a suspension. However, just like the electrification of power­trains, the increasing automation of driving functions will present new challenges regarding complexity, redundancy, data security, and installation space. Will the chassis remain a key area of expertise in 2050 or will it become just another component? How will an intelligent chassis need to be connected, electrified, and automated in order to be best prepared for the future? Which disruptive changes will have an impact on the supply industry, and how? These are just some of the exciting questions that will be discussed at the anniversary of the International Munich Chassis Symposium, plus. 2019 will mark the 20th anniversary of, which is being held for the tenth time in its present form as plus.

To provide an exchange of ideas and experience and to ensure constructive discussions on the very latest topics, the 10th International Munich Chassis Symposium, chassis. tech plus, will bring together numerous experts from the fields of chassis design, steering, brake systems, and tires/wheels on 25 and 26 June 2019.

Tell us about your latest innovative research and development projects. On behalf of the Scientific Advisory Board, we would like to invite you to contribute to the success of the event by presenting a paper. After the symposium, your presentation will be published on the Springer Professional knowledge platform and in a Springer book on the conference.

We cordially invite you contribute to the success of this ATZ Conference by submitting a specialist presentation.
