  • Strategic Trends in Engine & Efficiency Research 2017—The COMVEC Symposium highlighting how fellow researchers are pushing the limits of efficiency in a changing political and regulatory world
  • Aerodynamic Trends 2017—The COMVEC Symposium highlighting advances that are changing the shape of vehicles and air management systems worldwide.

What’s new:

  • New Format—Symposia format brings you deeper into technical discussions with thought leaders
  • New Date—September 18-20, 2017
  • New Location—Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare & Conference Center

COMVEC 17 is the central forum for the community that develops vehicles and equipment spanning the on-highway, off-highway, agricultural, construction, industrial, military, and mining sectors. The need to increase safety, reduce CO2 emissions, and improve vehicle efficiencies for fuel savings is what drives the research and technology across all of the noted sectors. Improvements in internal combustion engines, new powertrain options (e.g. hybrids, electric, and natural gas), autonomous vehicles, and fuel efficiencies gained through aerodynamics, braking, and platooning are all important topics to be discussed during COMVEC 17. Business topics are covered in executive panels and keynotes, while technical topics are covered in symposia sessions and published paper presentations.

Discover the latest and critical need-to-know information impacting global commercial vehicles through the expanded event program. Participate in interactive panel discussions, experience the dynamic technical displays, and connect with industry leaders. Make plans now to attend!

Please note that a call for papers will not be issued. For authors looking to publish their work with commercial vehicle content, a written-only option is only available. To do this, please visit for more details.
