Conférences

From Thursday, October 6 at 2pm

to 6pm on Sunday, October 9

Four days of workshops and conferences to foster positive dialogue and engaged discussion around urban mobility issues, including two free days for the general public. Renowned speakers from around the world will share their vision on three themed subjects: connected mobility, mobility shares and reconquering the city.

Startups are like kittens …

… they’re cute until they get bigger. How can we prevent conflicts between legislations and startups in order to give enough freedom to innovate while protecting the social model of the countries they do business in?

Speakers :

Laurent Grandguillaume (Député de la Côte d’or, Assemblée Nationae)
Teddy Pellerin (CEO, Heetch)
Thibaud Simphal (Directeur France, Uber)

Planning for a driverless society

How driverless technologies will impact traffic and pollution in our cities mainly depends on our capacity to give up vehicle-ownership. Are we ready to make that step, and deal with its consequences on our employment and taxation systems ?

Speaker :

Robin Chase (Fondatrice, Zipcar, Veniam)

Are driverless vehicles cybersafe?

Driverless vehicles promise to revolutionize transportation. However, their hyperconnectivity makes them vulnerable to cyber attacks. To face these security challenges what are the action taken by the autonomous vehicles ecosystem?

Speakers :

Pejvan Begui (Head of IT, EasyMile)
Commandant Dario Zugno (Adjoint au chef de l’Observatoire Central des Systèmes de Transports Intelligents – OCSTI, Gendarmerie Nationale)
Witold Klaudel (Directeur de projet, System X)

Our conference programme was elaborated in partnership with Ouishare, the ADEME, Usbek & Rica and the Chronos group. We would particularly like to thank Gabriel Plassat (ADEME), for his valuable insight on the challenges of this moving universe.
