Traditionally, the EVS has been as an academic symposium for global networking and the exchange of scientific ideas and information. However, for the 32nd EVS edition the program will be broken down into two main streams – the Scientific Series and the AVERE E-Mobility Conference (AEC2019) Series, rounded off with three high level plenary sessions spread across the duration of the Symposium.
