Our Common Future under Climate Change

6-10 July 2015, Paris, France

This four-day conference will be the largest forum for the scientific community to come together ahead of the 21st UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP21), which will be hosted by France in December 2015 (“Paris Climat 2015”). Building on the results of IPCC 5th Assessment Report (AR5), the Conference will address key issues concerning climate change in the broader context of global change. It will offer an opportunity to discuss solutions for both mitigation and adaptation issues. The Conference will also welcome Side Events organized by different stakeholders.

The conference is organized under the umbrella of ICSU, Future Earth, UNESCO and major French research institutions, with the support of the French Government.

During the event, the European Commission will present 2 parallel sessions:

  • Post-2030 decarbonisation pathways in Europe
  • European Collaborative Research and Innovation for Climate Action

19th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2015) - Smart Systems for Green and Automated Driving

7-8 July 2015, Berlin

Leading engineers and scholars from all around the world are cordially invited to participate in the dialogue and submit proposals for papers addres­sing ongoing research and novel developments in this field.

Discussions at the conference will focus particularly on the application areas men­tioned below. A special attention will be given to topics covered in public funding programmes like the European Green Vehicles Initiative PPP of Horizon 2020.

The AMAA 2015 will be opened with speeches by Willy Van Puymbroeck, Head of Unit Components, DG CNECT, European Commission and Stefan Mengel, Head of Unit Electronic Systems and Electric Mobility, Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Germany).

Further keynote speakers include Remi Bastien (Renault), Patrice Reilhac (Valeo) and Fabio Marchio (ST Microelectronics) among others.

A panel on the recently published EPoSS Roadmap on Automated Driving (http://www.smart-systems-integration.org/public/news-events/news/eposs-roadmap-smart-systems-for-automated-driving-now-published ) will discuss evolutionary and revolutionary development paths.

Furthermore, the conference will look beyond technology and into the relation between IOT, robotics and cognitive systems of green, automated and connected driving by keynotes about the PAN-Robots project by Kay Fürstenberg (SICK), AIOTI by Marko Haeckel (Bosch) and Smart Systems for CO2 Reduction by Thomas Gallner (Continental).

Legal aspects of autonomous driving will be covered by Gaelle Kermorgant (ALFRATEC). Latest developments in technology will be covered by a multitude of interesting technical contributions on the topics ADAS and automated driving, C2X and ITS, Green vehicle electronic systems & concepts.

Last not least, a session on global opportunities and European clusters in electric mobility will inform on selected international markets and supply chains and strategies of European clusters.
