Vehicle Electronics & Connected Services 2018 will take place on the 12th-13th April 2018 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Being present at VECS is an excellent opportunity to enhance your network and meet OEMs and key players from the automotive ecosystem! Get an excellent overview of future strategies and technologies in the fields of Autonomous, Electrification, Connectivity, Digitalization and New mobility solutions.

Take advantage of this opportunity to present your expertise to the delegates as a speaker at the conference.

We are inviting you to submit an abstract which should include the following:

  • Presentation title
  • 3-5 bullet points summarizing the content
  • Speaker name, job title and company
  • A short paragraph (three or four sentences) describing the proposed presentation

The abstract should provide a technical insight, share unique challenges and experiences, and discuss technical solutions you’d like to share with the automotive community. Strategic keynote topics (see below) are also welcome.

Presenting at VECS 2018 gives you the opportunity to share your latest technical ideas and achievements with influential specialists among the delegates and to discuss your work with colleagues in the industry.

Please submit your application below:


Speakers should submit their applications by 10th October 2017.
