Call for Speakers Opens for The Battery Show in Novi, MI

Speakers on all aspects of battery, electric and hybrid vehicle, and critical power technologies are invited to submit their proposals to speak at The Battery Show conferences happening in September. Submission deadline is February 28.

The advisors of The Battery Show (TBS) Conference, Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology (EVT) Conference, and Critical Power (CPE) Conference, invite presenters to submit speaking proposals for the event conferences, to be held September 11-13, 2018.

Track topics for this year’s conference will include but are not limited to:

  • Advanced Battery Technologies
  • Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technologies
  • Critical Power Technologies

Sample topic areas for each track can be seen here:

encouraging attendees to explore topics with greater depth and breadth. Workshops are held on the Monday before the Expo and Conferences begin and offer a more detailed and interactive learning experience on battery and E/HV topics.

PLENARY PANEL DISCUSSION – 1.5-HOUR analysis of broad industry trends from a variety of angles. Plenary topics appeal to interests of both battery and electric and hybrid vehicle experts and provide an opening discussion that sets the mood for the technical discussions that follow. When proposing a plenary panel discussion, please provide a list of your prospective speakers.

TECHNICAL DISCUSSION – 20-MINUTE solo sessions explaining a new technology and its implications. Individual technical discussions are grouped by topic within either the battery or electric/hybrid vehicle tracks. Following a grouping of technical discussions, the four to five speakers gather in a panel discussion to answer questions. Please present your submission as a solo session. The conference director will then group solo sessions by cohesive topics.

OPEN TECH FORUM PRESENTATION – 30-MINUTE interactive presentations on the Expo floor that are open to all event attendees. These sessions can include teardowns, demos, and discussions of applications or trends.

We encourage talks that reveal new ways of thinking about and applying battery, power, and energy technologies. Real-world examples that show a novel application of technology or illustrate a solution to a technical challenge in an end product, including a detailed discussion of the trade-offs and choices made.

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

Proposals must be submitted by February 28, 2018, through the electronic portal.
