Held one day before the expo kicks off, these intensive 3-hour workshops encourage attendees to explore topics in greater depth and breadth, offering a more detailed and interactive learning experience on core subject matter in advanced batteries, electric & hybrid vehicles, and beyond.

Short, 15-minute sessions provide a rapid-fire presentation on a specific business or manufacturing topic. Talks will be featured in a series curated by subject and will be followed by a panel discussion where attendees can engage with the presenters.

These quick, 20-minute presentations will cover recent innovations, research, and findings. Individual talks will each be followed by a brief Q&A and will be grouped together by topic.

Deep technical dives given by one presenter or co-presenters that delve into a new technology and its implications. These sessions will explore multiple aspects of the research or development on a given topic, including a detailed discussion of the trade-offs and choices made. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask in-depth questions after the presentation.

Panel discussions provide an analysis of broad industry trends from a variety of angles. These 45-minute discussions will begin with the moderator providing an overview of the topic and each panelist giving a very short introduction to themselves and their area of expertise. The session will primarily consist of dialogue between the panelists, followed by a portion of Q&A from the audience.

Forum presentations are interactive and held in the Open Tech Forum on the Expo floor, open to all event attendees. These sessions will include product teardowns, demos, and discussions of applications or trends.

In general, we look for speakers who are willing to share their knowledge to help design and innovation continue and grow. Proposals that aim to decidedly market a specific engineer, company, or product will not be considered.

Proposals must be submitted by March 29, 2019, through the electronic portal.
