Cenex-LCV2016 Call for Speakers

Themes to include Connected & Autonomous Vehicles, Aerodynamics, Light-weighting, Automotive Electronics and more

For the first time Cenex invited organisations to submit Expression of Interest (EOI) forms to present at Cenex-LCV2016. A high level of interest in presenting at LCV2016 was experienced and the expression of interest phase has now closed.

The LCV2016 seminar programme has been designed with two aims in mind. First, it seeks to showcase the latest technology developments and results from research projects. The second aim is to look at the future direction for the low carbon vehicle community to ask and hopefully answer the question of ‘What Next?’ for technology developments and innovation support.

LCV2016 will host the following seminar themes:

  • Low Carbon Propulsion Technologies
  • Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles: Policy and Market Trends
  • Vehicle Light-Weighting and Aerodynamics
  • The Automotive Council and UK Capabilities Development
  • Grants for Research and Development
  • Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
  • Digital Engineering, Modelling and Simulation
  • Design Engineering, Test and Validation
  • Advanced Materials
  • Automotive Electronics (New to LCV2016)
  • High Value Manufacturing (New to LCV2016)
  • Energy for Transport: Alternative Fuels and Energy Infrastructure
  • Low Carbon Buses
  • Low Carbon Commercial Vehicles
  • Air Quality and Low Carbon Innovation

Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex says, “This year we have decided to extend our seminar programme by inviting organisations to submit an expression of interest form to present at LCV2016. Every year it is our aim to generate a highly topical and comprehensive seminar programme. By extending the invitation to present, we are hopeful that LCV2016 will bring together some of the best minds in the industry, to educate, inform and engage with the LCV community.”
