Call for Papers for AMAA 2015: Deadline extended to 10 February 2015

AMAA 2015 - 19th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications - will take place in Berlin, 7-8 July 2015. The new deadline for abstract submission is 10 February 2015.

The automobile of the future will have to respond to two major trends, the electrification of the drivetrain, and the automation of the transportation system.

These trends will not only lead to a greener and safer driving but redefine the concept of the car completely, particularly if they interact with each other in a synergetic way as for autonomous parking and charging, selfdriving shuttles or mobile robots.

Enabling functionalities like environment perception are mostly enabled by electronic components and systems, sensors and actors, communication network nodes and smart systems integration.

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 and to discuss the technological implications from early on. Therefore, the topic of the conference in 2015 will be “Smart Systems for Green and Automated Driving”. 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 of Horizon 2020.

We are looking forward to receiving your proposals, and to meeting you for an inspiring conference in early summer 2015.

More information and instructions are available here.


  • Abstract Submission: 10 February 2015
  • Invitation for Paper: Mid-February 2015
  • Paper Submission: 31 March 2015

Abstract Submission

Abstract Submission Proposals for presentation of a paper at the 19th AMAA should be submitted in the form of abstracts including title, names and affiliations of authors and short summary of content(not exceeding one page A4) to the AMAA Office by 10th February 2015.

Contributions are expected to address recent research, development, and innovations either for applications or for the enabling technologies.

The selection criteria include scientific soundness and innovative strength of the described work. The evaluation process involving the members of the AMAA Steering Committee will take place until mid-February 2015. The presenting author of an accepted paper is obliged to register for the conference and will benefit from a reduced registration fee.
