The automobile is going through the biggest transformation in its history. Automation and electrification of vehicles are expected to enable safer and cleaner mobility. The prospects and requirements of the future automobile affect innovations in major technology fields like driver assistance systems, vehicle networking and drivetrain development. Smart systems such as adaptive ICT components and MEMS devices, novel network architectures, integrated sensor systems, intelligent interfaces and functional materials form the basis of these features and permit their successful and synergetic integration. They increasingly appear to be the key enabling technologies for safe and green road mobility.

It has been the mission of the International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA) for more than fifteen years to detect novel trends like this and to discuss the technological implications from early on. Therefore, the topic of the AMAA 2014 will be “Smart Systems for Safe, Clean and Automated Vehicles”.

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 programs like the European Green Vehicles Initiative PPP.

We are looking forward to receiving your proposals, and to meeting you for an inspiring conference in summer 2014.

Conference Book

All papers presented at the AMAA 2014 are published in a Conference Book which is published worldwide as part of the  Springer book series Lecture Notes in Mobility prior to the conference. Participants will receive a complimentary copy of the book. 

Sponsorship Opportunities

There is a multitude of opportunities to bring your company’s activities to the attention of the AMAA community. These are ranging from the standard option to include your company’s logo into select communications to a platinum option which comprises an entry in the list of sponsors on the first pages of the conference book.

Exhibitor Information

The exhibition is an integral part of the AMAA. On both conference days, companies will be given the opportunity to present new products and services as well as novel technologies to an international expert audience representing automakers, suppliers and academia. Prototype vehicles can be shown at a parking lot close to the venue.

Side Events

Working groups e.g. of EPoSS and other initiatives will meet at dedicated satellite events of the AMAA 2014.
