Past Events & Publications

In 2003, our conference started as “Braunschweiger Symposium: Faszination Karosserie” addressing innovative concepts of vehicle bodies. Under the chairmanship of Prof. Franke from TU Braunschweig it became a successful biennial event. A close collaboration between academia and industry was pursued strongly from the beginning.

In 2012, the conference moved to Wolfsburg and its name was changed to “Symposium Faszination Karosserie und Fahrzeugkonzepte” adding more general vehicle concepts to the agenda. From 2014 onwards the conference chair is shared by Prof. Dröder and Prof. Vietor from TU Braunschweig and the new title “Faszination Leichtbau” emphasises lightweight structures, the most current challenges in vehicle design. With the opening of the research campus Open Hybrid LabFactory in Wolfsburg, the conference subject was modified to “Faszination hybrider Leichtbau”. The event took place successfully in 2016 and 2018. Significant peer-reviewed conference proceedings evolved from the past events.

Now, in 2020, we are looking forward to your participation from academia and industry at our Conference on Future Production of Hybrid Structures.
