CST Automotive Conference 2017 preview: An interview with Matthias Tröscher

We spoke with Matthias Tröscher, one of the primary organizers of the CST Automotive Conference to discuss this year's event which will take place November 14th at the Audi Forum in Neckarsulm, Germany. If you are interested in attending, you can register here.

What are the goals of the 2017 Automotive Conference?

Automotive Conference 2015- Munich
There are several key goals of this conference. First, we want to provide a forum for decision makers and engineers in the automotive industry who are dealing with electromagnetic simulation to concentrate on simulation techniques and simulation applications.
We are also seeking to bring together both OEMs and tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers in a neutral environment to facilitate mutual discussion and knowledge exchange.
This conference will combine all EM simulation related topics in a single conference: from DC / low frequency up to high-speed design and radar applications. We have presentations that discuss the complete value-added chain: from IC and package to PCB, connector, cable, and antenna and finally to the entire vehicle in its (electromagnetic) environment.
There will be a focus on Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), autonomous driving, electric vehicles, connected vehicles, and electronic components and we will show state-of-the-art EM simulation, demonstrate best practices and highlight improvements from recent years.
Attendees will be able to talk with experts and presenters from various world-leading automotive companies and learn from them how they use EM software in their processes. We will have a panel discussion with representatives from OEMs and suppliers on how much simulation cooperation is required between the parties.

What are you most excited about at this year’s conference?

I’m particularly excited about this year’s keynote speeches from Audi (representing the OEMs), TE Connectivity (an important tie-in auto industry as connector manufacturer) and Dassault Systèmes (demonstrating the vision of simulation in Transportation and Mobility industries).
For the first time, the conference will feature a combination of EM simulation and mechanical simulation of electric vehicles (Vibro-Acoustic Simulation of Electric Powertrain) and we plan to include more in future conferences.
We have 21+ high-quality technical presentations from more than 15 different companies and academic institutions; including a plenary talk presented by BMW on the democratization of EM simulation which will be followed by panel discussion on how to achieve this between OEMs and suppliers.

Why should people choose this conference and who should consider coming?

This conference is mainly concentrating on electromagnetic simulation in automotive industry, so we welcome all people who are working in this field. I’d encourage people to attend because there is no other entirely open conference with similar content right now.
Attendees get a comprehensive overview of the field condensed into one day about all the relevant aspects of electromagnetic simulation on the component level as well as for full vehicles.

Register today to save your place at the CST Automotive Conference!
