Call for Papers - Thermal management is a critical driver of vehicle performance, durability, and cost. Its scope includes vehicle propulsion systems (ICE, hybrid, and electric), batteries, cabin comfort, waste heat recovery, energy efficiency, and emissions control. The Thermal Management Digital Summit brings together key stakeholders from OEMs, suppliers, and academia to share their knowledge and vision to deliver the future of the automobile from a thermal standpoint. Speaking at the event will establish you as a subject matter expert while helping advance the field of thermal management for the automotive industry.

Presentations are invited in several thermal management areas, including: battery thermal performance, electric vehicle range and charging impacts, cooling of electronic components, ICE powertrain thermal performance, emissions after-treatment and waste heat recovery enhancements, compact heat exchangers, cabin and passenger comfort, refrigerant systems, heat exchangers and intelligent control devices, vehicle underhood and underbody temperature assessment and packaging. The digital summit will also consider the latest developments in physical testing, integration of cooling with climate control, simulation software, and optimization of control system strategies based on thermal requirements.

Topics Under Consideration • Automotive Thermal Systems and Components • Thermal Systems for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles • Thermal Systems for Autonomous and Connected Vehicles • Autonomous Interior Climate Management • Thermal Systems for Fuel Cells Vehicles • Thermal Systems for Commercial and Off-Road Vehicles • Vehicle Climate Control and Thermal Comfort, incl. Cabin Air Quality & Human Factors • Vehicle Underhood and Underbody Thermal Management • Thermal Management Strategies • Thermal Modeling and Simulations • Powertrain Energy Management • Waste Heat Recovery • Regulatory Topics • Developments in Alternative Refrigerant Systems (R-744, R-123yf, other refrigerants)

Panel Discussions with Senior Industry Experts will also be included in the technical program.
