Preview 2017  Review 2015Programme

On 20 and 21 September the Aachen Body Engineering Days 2016 take place at the Institute for Automotive Engineering (ika) of RWTH Aachen University. The international conference is a well established meeting point for body engineering, material and manufacturing technology experts and offers the opportunity for exchange about recent and future developments. The conference comprises presentations of notable speakers offering an outlook on strategies and visions in body engineering, technical sessions and presentations of the latest car bodies and their components. A key element of the conference is the technical exhibition, where latest vehicles, vehicle bodies and innovative structural design concepts are presented. A simultaneous translation during the conference fosters an intensive exchange with international speakers and guests. In the last years more than 200 experts participated in the conference. Find some impressions from last year here.

We would be happy to welcome you at the Aachen Body Engineering Days 2016.
