Programme - Oral Sessions

Mechatronics & Aerospace
The Mechatronics and Aerospace Industry in Europe is one of the most advanced industries in the world and also highly accredited for its sustainable job creation during the recent economic downturn time. Within the vast Mechatronics area, the robotics is one of the key areas that South Korea invests a lot of efforts to catch up the gap, whilst Korean automotive industry is now leading the world automotive innovations. This session group aims to gather together Korean and European Mechatronics and Aerospace experts for their exchange of opinions and viewpoints on the Korean/European Projects and related Industries, review the current and new development projects, in view of potential cooperation in this domain. This session group, therefore, plans to organize the following sessions: • Session 1 – Space Exploration Strategy and Technology Development • Session 2 – Propulsion and Power systems in Aerospace and Automotive Industries • Session 3 – Emerging Technologies and Market Trends of Future Transportation System • Session 4 – Latest Advances in High-Performance Computer (HPC) and its Engineering Application (Jointly organised with ITM group) • Session 5 – Big Data in Aerospace and Automotive Industries (Jointly organised with ITM group) • Session 6 – Robotics and Industry 4.0 However, additional subjects could be added for discussion, should you propose within your abstract submission. We strongly encourage you to express yourself, while you are in Europe or from Korea. In addition to the above Science and Technology Sessions, the European Korean Mechanics and Aerospace Experts Group will organize its Group Creation Ceremony and the first General Assembly meeting during the EKC2018. All relevant experts in Europe and in Korea are cordially invited to this ceremony.

The space exploration is going through a remarkable evolution, thanks to the recent technology development both in the platform and payload area. Recognized as New Space players, several tens of startup companies in the world are leading such industrial landscape change. Combined with these technological advances, the traditionally government led space exploration activities are now more and more encouraged by the private companies, or at least in a form of public-private-partnerships (PPP). European industries are again leading such industrial revolution by demonstrating several world leading small satellite companies. However, in the field of the launch vehicle, the leading role is clearly shifted to the US private sectors, whilst European counterparts are trying to catch up their delays. In this session, we would like to review the current status of the Space Exploration strategies and the associated industrial landscapes, where the participants could appreciate the presence of different actors both in Europe and in Korea. As a result, the participants may be able to find additional collaboration opportunities, including Korean-European joint project call participation such as Horizon 2020, Eureka or EU-Korean bi-lateral programmes.

EU legislation has set mandatory target for new cars to reduce its emission to 95 grams of CO2 per kilometer by 2021. In addition, the UK Government has recently announced that Britain is to ban new petrol and diesel cars and vans from 2040. This has led to intensive researches on the advanced technologies required not only for low carbon vehicles but also for zero emission vehicles. What is more, due to the remarkable achievements made in the area of space transportation by the first privately funded aerospace manufacturer, SpaceX, there has been increasing public interests and also wisdom for space exploration. This session aims to discuss and understand the current state-of-the-art of emerging technologies and industry trends of future mobility systems.
