The 2018 IEEE Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference (VPPC) will be held in Chicago, IL, USA, under a shared organization between University of Sherbrooke, Argonne National Laboratory, University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières and INESC Coimbra.


The conference aims to provide a forum for sharing knowledge, experience and creative ideas in vehicle power and propulsion. Our main goal is to provide an interesting forum about vehicle power and propulsion to develop and promote technologies to enlarge the e-mobility network. It will include keynote papers by authoritative speakers, technical sessions, tutorial sessions, poster sessions, special and invited sessions, and exhibitions.


Technical papers, tutorials and industry participations are all welcome. Proposals of special sessions are also gratefully expected. Moreover, VPPC 2018 will be in a carbon care philosophy. We will try to reduce the conference ecological footprint. The CO2 emissions associated with the travel of attendees will be compensated by carbon reduction projects.
