Resource Efficient Vehicles conference (rev2021)

14-16 June 2021

Conference held online:

The Resource Efficient Vehicles conference – rev2021 – will be held online on 14-16 June 2021. This vehicle-centric conference aims to bring together participants from academia, industry and public agencies to discuss research from all relevant fields connected to resource efficiency in vehicles and their interdependent surrounding systems.

This conference will use the latest in online conferencing techniques to create a dynamic and interactive environment for participants, with workshops, group discussions, research presentations and keynote lectures from invited speakers.

The theme of this multidisciplinary conference is resolving functional conflicts in vehicle design. Vehicles provide a transport solution for people and goods. In doing so, they generate many economic and societal benefits. However, they also incur many environmental burdens, such as greenhouse gas emissions, resource depletion and environmental noise. This conflict between transport provision and environmental impacts is at the heart of future sustainable vehicle design. Resolving it requires not only technological improvements of the vehicles themselves but also a rethink of the wider vehicles system and the behaviour of the vehicle user.

Call for abstracts

The conference Organising Committee would like to invite prospective authors to submit abstracts in through our online submission system in the following conference topics including:

  • Modelling for multifunctional design
  • Making tradeoffs in design
  • Efficient use of materials and space
  • Integrating new solutions
  • Transforming the product system
  • Transforming the vehicle-transport system
  • Sustainable design, and 
  • Early-stage design. 

The deadline for abstracts is 18th December 2020.

Accepted authors will be asked to contribute a full paper for inclusion in the conference proceedings and to present at the conference.
