Abstract Submission

EVS 31 & EVTeC 2018 Call for Papers

EVS is the world’s largest international exhibition and symposium for all fields related to EV and is held under the auspices of WEVA.

EVTeC, an international, academic conference on EV-related technology, has been held by the JSAE since 2011, in collaboration with APE Japan.

In the hopes of enhancing the quality of research presentations and increasing participation, the Technical Sessions will be organized jointly for EVS 31 & EVTeC 2018. We anticipate high quality papers that introduce the latest research, activities, and implementation examples of EV and other related technologies.

We sincerely hope that everyone involved in EV will be able to join us at EVS 31 & EVTeC 2018, and bring their latest findings, which will undoubtedly be of great interest to us.
