On June, 23rd 2016, the 8th Scientific Forum Mobility themed „Individual, Integrated and Connected Products and Services in Mobility“ will take place at the inHaus II at the University of Duisburg-Essen, campus Duisburg. This annual event provides a platform for intensive discussions of research projects, bringing together about 200 experts from both, academia and industry. After focussing on e-mobility in 2014 and international developments in 2015, next year’s forum will highlight the connected mobility.

The organising committee is now asking for original contributions, dealing with automotive management, automotive technologies, with mobility in urban systems, integrated customer solutions and logistical concepts. For the first time, the 2016 forum is co-organised by the Centre for Logistics & Traffic (ZLV) and gives the opportunity to contribute logistics-focused research in Track 6 – Emerging Concepts of (Technical) Logistics. Track 6 is chaired by ZLV chair Prof. Dr. Bernd Noche and ZLV executive director Klaus Krumme.
