FPC2025 Call For Abstracts is now open

AVL Powertrain UK and Imperial College London need your help us develop the future of Future Propulsion Conference for 2025. We are looking for speakers and contributors who can help point the way forward with disruptive technologies and business models, the latest research, and stimulating and thought-provoking ideas. We are particularly keen to encourage the next generation to both attend and contribute, with sessions reserved for start-ups and younger researchers and engineers. We will be investing in the future by offering a large number of heavily discounted tickets for students and recent graduates, alongside competitions for free tickets (further details will follow).

FPC2025 will be a two-day event bringing together industry and academic experts within the propulsion field to present and discuss solutions to the challenges facing the UK propulsion industry over the next decade.

The call for abstracts is now open. We invite early career and established researchers, engineers and scientists from academia and industry to respond. Sessions will be finalised once abstracts have been collated and reviewed, but we are looking for contributions in the following areas:

  • Alternative mobility services.
  • Machine learning and AI.
  • The future, 10 years and beyond.
  • Broader propulsion systems, off-road, maritime, aerospace.
  • Batteries focus on applications and systems engineering.
  • Infrastructure and energy systems. What is future of energy sector going to be?
  • Funding, protecting, and building your ideas.
  • Commercialising and scaling to volume.
  • Start-up and spin-outs.
  • Student take-over*

* we are interested in proposals from groups of students to run a session in a novel way.

We would be very interested in hearing from keynote speakers who can:

  • Talk about disruptive technologies and/or ideas;
  • Offer European and/or Worldwide perspectives;
  • Talk about alternative visions for future propulsion systems.

As usual, we are also keen to hear about the latest developments and trends in the following technologies:

  • Hydrogen, eFuels and other alternative fuels.
  • Fuel cells
  • Batteries
  • Hybrids
  • Electrical Machines
  • Power Electronics

The objectives of the Scientific Advisory Board are to:

  • Encourage participation across academia and industry – and we are particularly keen to hear from OEMs
  • Promote work that offers new insights, broad perspectives, or addresses the key challenges facing the automotive industry over the next ten years,
  • Introduce new faces and organisations to FPC, while continuing to welcome regular attendees, and,
  • We actively avoid explicit sales pitch presentations*.

With these aims in mind, please submit a half- to one-page abstract detailing the work you wish to present, and a brief description of yourself and why you should present, based on the criteria above, through the form below by Friday 30th August 2024.

Submissions will be reviewed by the Scientific Advisory Board (the members of which are listed on the conference website) and candidates will be notified of their acceptance shortly after.
