EVS 31 and EVTeC 2018: Call for Papers!

EVS 31 and EVTeC 2018: Call for Papers!

The call for papers for EVS 31 (the 31st Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition) and EVTeC 2018 (International Electric Vehicle Technology Conference) is now open. For the 2018 editions, the Technical Sessions will be jointly organised:

EVS is the world’s largest international exhibition and symposium for all fields related to EV and is held under the auspices of WEVA. EVTeC, an international, academic conference on EV-related technology, has been held by the JSAE since 2011, in collaboration with APE Japan. In the hopes of enhancing the quality of research presentations and increasing participation, the Technical Sessions will be organized jointly for EVS 31 & EVTeC 2018. We anticipate high quality papers that introduce the latest research, activities, and implementation examples of EV and other related technologies”.

Please find all information below or directly via the abstract submission page.

    (name, affiliation, complete mailing address, email address, telephone number)
  6. Abstract (approx. 1,000 words, with figures)

The final manuscript should not exceed seven A4 size pages. Extended abstract and the final manuscript should be submitted online.

Please use the templates as published on the abstract submission page.

Presentation Style

  • All abstracts, final manuscripts, posters, and presentation data have to be prepared and presented in English.
  • The author can choose the presentation style, either oral or poster. However, the final decision will be made by the EVS 31 & EVTeC 2018 Program Committee.


  • In order to present a paper at EVS 31, all presenters must complete their registration as a delegate or a student.
  • Multiple submissions are possible; however, the number of presentations per person is limited to one. If multiple papers are accepted, the presenters of those accepted papers must be different.
