E|PTS – Production Technologies and Systems for E-Mobility

End of June 2024 in Bamberg


Increasing power consumption, CO₂ reduction, growing urbanization and mobility combined with progressing automation and digitalization – all of these future megatrends are impossible without efficient production technologies and systems. The electrification of powertrains in all kinds of mobility is considered crucial, as the whole mobility sector is facing difficulties resulting from the substitution of conventional propulsion technologies. Besides advancing ideas on the design of new propulsion technologies, the organization of the manufacturing processes and systems is of utmost importance.
The CIRP sponsored Conference on Production Technologies and Systems for E-Mobility offers an outstanding platform for the exchange of experiences from developers, researchers and potential users.
The focus of the conference is set on the presentation of highly innovative products from various industries as well as manufacturing processes and strategies. Additionally there will be an accompanying industrial exhibition poster presentation and an associated program.

Futher information can be found in Call for paper.

Experts of industry and science are invited to present a contribution on the topics listed or on other topics that correspond to the general subject of the conference. Abstracts of about 300 words containing significant facts should be submitted online in English to the conference office containing the following information:

  • Title of the contribution
  • Subject / topic of the contribution
  • 3 – 6 keywords
  • Full name, organization or company, postal and email addresses of all authors

Abstracts will be examined before a fullaper (Scientific Contribution) or presentation (Industrial Contribution) can be uploaded.

Application-oriented Contribution

In particular, experts of industry are invited to present an issue within an application-oriented industrial track without the necessity of preparing a fullpaper.

After the acceptance of your abstract, the presentation / slides will be published in the accompanying industrial transcript.

The application-oriented contribution is an ideal platform for exhibitors and non-exhibitors to present technologies.

Scientific Contribution

For scientific contributions authors have to prepare a fullpaper (4-8 pages) that will be reviewed and accepted by the International Program Committee.

The proceedings of the E|PTS containing all final accepted scientific papers are published on FAUPress .


Please send the prepared abstract by e-mail to Benedikt Scheffler (benedikt.scheffler@faps.fau.de).



E|PTS 2024 will take place at the Congress Centrum Bamberg, Germany. For your accommodation, several hotels are booked all over the city.

Early Registration

until Feb. 26, 2024


E|PTS 2024 will be completed by a comprehensive Table Top exhibition. Companies, research institutes and other organizations will be offered the opportunity to present their products and services to all participants. It is a perfect opportunity to meet your target audience. Detailed technical discussions will be guaranteed.

The exhibition is organized by Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg.
For any further questions regarding E|PTS Table Top Exhibition please contact Eva Russwurm (eva.russwurm@faps.fau.de) or Benedikt Scheffler (benedikt.scheffler@faps.fau.de):
