Special Sessions

Proposals for Special Sessions at VPPC 2010 are currently being accepted. A Special Session should focus on a specific topic within vehicular power propulsion (see VPPC 2009 for examples). Special Sessions represent a valuable method of gathering worldwide specialists on a chosen topic. The review process is expected to be managed by the chair and co-chair of the Special Session. A chair and a co-chair from another country will be appreciated.

Any proposals (in the form of a Call for Papers) should be sent to Prof. Daniel HISSEL (FEMTO-ST, Univ. Franche Comté, MEGEVH, France), who is in charge of Special Sessions: Daniel.Hissel@univ-fcomte.fr. Templates in Microsoft Word and in Open Office Writer are provided to aid in preparing submissions. After a discussion by the Organizing Committee, session submitters will be notified about whether or not their session was approved.

Under a carbon care philosophy, please limit this “Special Session” Call for Papers to a single page in order to limit printing.
