Electro-Mechanical and Systems Integration in the Aero/Auto World


Jun 11th 2018 - Jun 12th 2018

Nottingham, United Kingdom

Updated 18/05/18

This seminar will give an insight into emerging new technologies and developments related to the electrification and systems integration effort in the automotive and aerospace industries, an effort which is becoming ever-more important and resource and research demanding.

The ever-increasing pressure to achieve sustainable and most importantly more responsible transport is pushing the industry towards concepts like the more electric aircraft and the more electric engine etc… These efforts are key for modern automotive and aerospace systems, are associated with innovation and are under major focus in both industry and academia for modern applications to save energy and/or to reduce pollution.

There will be a significant number of invited contributions from researchers working in academia and in R&D in the industry sector. This will include sessions/talks on

  • Trends in electrification of automotive and aerospace systems
  • Multi-physics and inter-disciplinary design methodologies
  • Component design (electrical machines, power electronics, drive-trains)
  • Industrial needs and strategy


The hotel on the university campus is close by the seminar venue in the Law Building. Rooms are available at the University rate of £75.00 per night single occupancy, or £85.00 per night double occupancy. The rate includes VAT and breakfast.
