ELIV MarketPlace – E/E in Passenger and Commercial Vehicles and Mobile Machinery

The ELIV-Marketplace is the venue where three top-class conferences are combined under one roof: “E/E in the Passenger Vehicle“, “E/E in the Commercial Vehicle “ and “E/E in Mobile Machinery “. You can switch between lectures anytime. Head of the conference is Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Runge, formerly ZF Lenksysteme, currently also chairing the Passenger Vehicle Programme. Technical Director of the Commercial Vehicle Programme is Dr.-Ing. Hans Welfers, who used to work for MAN. Dipl.-Ing. Peter Hieronymus from CLAAS is the Technical Director of the agenda covering Electronics in Mobile Machinery. The programme committee made up of specialists of the electronics community with a proven track record have been our inspiration for the Congress Programme. And finally the VDI-Fachgesellschaft Fahrzeug- und Verkehrstechnik (FVT) is the technical sponsor.

The ELIV MarketPlace never ceases to amaze - this year we offer an even broader programme: A number of keynote lectures given by high-ranking industry experts, five sessions with some 60 scheduled expert talks and for the very first time moderated discussion groups, so-called World Cafés, where there’s ongoing debate about E/E in mobility. The electronics community will be gathering for the evening do at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. A comprehensive trade exhibition makes the whole package complete (find more details here.)
