The 9th FISITA Student Congress runs parallel to the main congress from 14 -19 September and gives students from all over the world a unique opportunity to participate in this international conference and to present their own papers on automotive transportation and technologies.
Participants in the Student Congress are free to attend the Plenary Sessions of the main congress and will have their own technical sessions in the afternoons. Students are encouraged to present a paper, therefore priority will be given to students who submit an abstract with their application. The topics for the Student Congress are the same as those for the main congress:
- Mobility Concepts
- Chassis Development For Passenger Cars, Trucks And Buses
- Body Design For Passenger Cars, Trucks And Buses
- Future Powertrain Solutions
- Vehicle Concepts
- Vehicle Safety
- Resources & Ecology
- Virtual Reality
- Simulation & Testing
Technical visits to automotive research institutions will also be included.
The Student Congress is open to all students at all levels of higher education. Proof of student status is required in the form of a signature of approval from a representative of a national FISITA member society or university/college.
Applications and paper abstracts (not more than 10 lines) should be submitted by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 March 2008. The deadline for Final Papers (6-8 pages) is 13 June 2008. The organising committee will select a limited number of participants and inform applicants of their decision by early May. Awards will be presented for the best three papers at the Closing Ceremony of the main congress.
The registration fee for the Student Congress (100 EUR) will include accommodation, all activities that are planned for the Student Congress, and admission to certain main congress events. Transport costs to and from Munich must be covered by the participant or their national member society.
