2019 Conference: 21th International Conference on Advanced Vehicle Technologies (AVT)

The ASME 2019 International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference (IDETC/CIE 2019) will take place during August 18-21, 2019 in Anaheim, California, USA. IDETC/CIE 2019 will highlight emergent technologies that impact the critical engineering issues of product design and development, manufacturing, and the management and integration of information systems throughout the product life-cycle. These events are key international meetings for design and manufacturing engineers in academia, government and industry.

The 21th International Conference on Advanced Vehicle Technologies (AVT) is part of the event and will have a variety of topics/sessions for presentations as it allows flexibility to the authors. The sessions are:

  • AVT-1   Advances in Ground Vehicles Dynamics and Controls
  • AVT-2   Advances in Modelling and Testing Tire-Terrain Interaction
  • AVT-3   Advances in Methods for Ground Vehicle Systems Design
  • AVT-4   Advances in Ground Vehicle Safety and Ergonomics
  • AVT-5   Advances in Vehicle Electrification and Powertrain Design
  • AVT-6   Advances in Light Vehicles Design
  • AVT-7   Advances in Military and Commercial Ground Vehicle Design
  • AVT-8   Advances in Intelligent Vehicles
  • AVT-9   Milliken Lecture
  • AVT-10 Keynote Lecture

A Best Paper Award and a Student Best Paper Award (for papers authored and submitted by student as the primary author) will be awarded for conference papers that best exemplify the research advances in ground vehicle engineering based on technical reviews and evaluations of symposium organizers. Each Best Paper Award consists of a $500 cash prize per paper subject to availability of funds. Best paper Finalists are encouraged to submit an enhanced version to the ASME Journal of Mechanical Design.

The 2019 Milliken Lecturer is Professor Andrew Alleyne of the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign.

The 2019 Keynote Lecture is Energy Efficient Mobility Systems: Initial Findings from DOE’s SMART Mobility Initiative by David Anderson, Program Manager, US Department of Energy.

The VDC is also organizing a new workshop entitled Workshop on Trends in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles to be held in conjunction with the ASME IDETC conference.
