CESA 4.0

November 16th & 17th 2016 - Versailles

CESA 4.0 > AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS is under preparation…

The next edition of the successful conference on automotive electronics, CESA 4.0 will take place on 16 and 17 November 2016. The aim of CESA is to bring people from different backgrounds together to talk about today’s automotive electronics as well as future trends and technologies. We will look beyond the geographical horizon of our export markets and beyond the automotive technological horizon of connected and automated driving.

Organized by the French Association of Automotive Engineers (SIA) and strongly supported by the French Automotive Industry (PFA), this year CESA will focus on Electrification, Automated Driving and the transfer of knowledge from the electronics industry to automotive applications. We will again welcome many top speakers from OEMs (from France, Germany and elsewhere in the world), all major suppliers to the car industry and also representatives from other industries active in the factory 4.0.

Besides industrials we will also show some of the young Institutes of Technology created here in France recently, in particular VeDeCoM and IRT SystemX.

With the help of our sponsors and the partners of our dedicated exhibition we will facilitate networking between main actors in the market. As with previous, we develop specific partnerships with a country that is important for automotive electronics. After Austria and Germany for the first editions, we have chosen to highlight Asia for 2016.

Top speakers are expected such as engineering directors from French OEMs, as well as from foreign countries. At the last edition, more than half of the visitors travelled from locations other than France to Paris. Link to other industries, such as Industry 4.0. focusing on the example of automated driving, there are already solutions available in agriculture or factory automation that demonstrate the highest levels of autonomy. At the same time, usage of data and services in a cloud environment is becoming standard for office management and will certainly also  influence the automotive industry.

We are couting on you all to make CESA 2016 again an important social & business event!

Dr. Jochen Langheim, Chairman, STMicroelectronics
