Time : 13.50-14.10 Format : Keynote Speaker : Philippe Huysmans, VP of Growth - Ridecell The real revolution with autonomous vehicles will be autonomous mobility-as-a-service, rather than pure individual ownership. But where and how will these cars know where to go? What tools will be required to run a successful autonomous ridehailing service in the future? Autonomous vehicles will need a platform to direct them to pick up riders and to verify who is entering and exiting the vehicle. They will need extensive fleet management and predictive maintenance platforms to understand potential wear issues, automate towing, recharging, and cleaning, detect left items etc. to keep autonomous vehicles operating reliably. Entering carsharing and ridesharing services today are the best way for OEMs to best position themselves for autonomous service revolution.

Time : 16.40-17.15 Format : Round table Speakers : Fanny Brulebois, Head of Government Relations - Lime Fredrik Hjelm, Co-Founder & CEO - VOI Caroline Hazlehurst, Senior Director - Bird Nicolas Gorse, General Manager France - Dott This round table will be moderated by Adrien Lelièvre, journalist Les Echos Over the past two years, self-service electric scooter start-ups have taken over major cities. The French capital is the symbol of this since it has counted up to twelve operators. The common point of specialists in micromobility is to present the electric scooter as a remedy for the problems (pollution, traffic jams, noise, etc.) from which cities suffer. But their detractors contest its ecological virtues and denounce the congestion of the sidewalks.
Time : 17.20-18.00 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Patrice Pattée, adjoint au maire de Sceaux chargé de l’urbanisme, des mobilités, et de l’espace public Nicolas Louvet, fondateur et directeur du bureau de recherches 6-T Federica Campina, Chef d’agence, Communauto Paris This roundtable will be moderated by Yann Azran, Industry Expert - Mobility Makers During the summer of 2018, Autolib' stopped abruptly, excluding thousands of users and dozens of municipalities in Greater Paris from a car-sharing service. A year later, only the capital and a few neighbouring municipalities still offer a car-sharing service, now provided by a multitude of private operators. But what about the other municipalities? Are they condemned to be deprived of car-sharing offers? This session should open the debate between local elected officials and private operators on the conditions necessary for the return of a car-sharing service to these territories.
Time : 10.00-10.20 Format : Keynote Speaker : Marius Pigulla, Head of Open Innovation bei Deutsche Bahn | Beyond1435 Marius will give a deep dive into the mission and work of Beyond1435, as well as give an insight into a current project on the platform that shows how a corporate-startup-partnership can disrupt urban mass transit.

Our experts will discuss best practice as well as hurdles when it comes to collaborations between the two worlds in the transportation industry.
Time : 11.05-11.25 Format : Keynote Speaker : Jean-Marc Pagliero, Autonomous Vehicles Solution System Director - Alstom If we exclude elevators and gondola lifts, which also allow people transportation, without a driver or a person responsible for travel on board, the first autonomous vehicles, which required the development of regulatory texts and modified business models, are automatic metros, sometimes also called APM ("Automated People Movers"). These three mobility systems have, in common, to evolve in closed and manageable environments, and to be dedicated to public transport. At this stage of maturation, the autonomy of public transport systems and that of private vehicles must be understood in a very different way, in many respects. Nowadays, when we talk about "autonomy", we think about transport systems that will have to evolve in more complex environments and turn to public or private transport, in the future. Their development integrates many synergy possibilities and their implementation will be complementary. The speaker proposes to explain the main differences between these two uses, whether economic, commercial, technical, legislative or temporal. The confusion which still often occurs can only delay their emergence.
Time : 11.45-12.20 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Elsa Yousfi, Chargée de recherche en psychologie - VEDECOM Roland Anemian, Head of the New Uses to Mobility Department - Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines Jean-Laurent Franchineau, Directeur Grands Comptes Publics, Défense et Sécurité - VEDECOM, This round table will be moderated by Romain Erny, Director Mobility and Space - Choose Paris Region The Paris Region is fertile ground for starting or expanding an autonomous mobility business. 12 million inhabitants make 40 million trips daily across a broad range of urban and rural environments, making the Paris Region ripe for business implementation. Join our panel session to know more about autonomous mobility projects from territories in the Paris Region.
Time : 12.25-13.10 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Jessica Garcìa Soriano, R+D Project Leader - FICOSA Emmanuel Stawiarski, Pilote Innovation Localisation - Renault Karim Ramsi, Technical Marketing Manager - STMicroelectronics Francisco Domingo, Ingénieur GNSS - GMV Miguel Ortiz, Ingénieur de recherche - IFSTTAR Gabriel Frisch, Research Engineer - UTC This round table will be moderated by María Teresa Fernández Calzón, Technical Project Manager - GMV ESCAPE - European Safety Critical Applications Positioning proposes a new approach to safety-critical positioning for autonomous driving. It has developed the ESCAPE GNSS Engine, or EGE, an innovative automotive-grade localization engine for autonomous vehicles. In this round-table, the partners of the project will present their view on some of the hottest Autonomous Driving topics.

Time : 14.00-14.40 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Olivier Terral, Head of the partnerships division - Electric mobility program of Enedis Cécile Goubet, Secretary General of AVERE-FRANCE Jean-Marc RIVES, Directeur général adjoint – Directeur technique GIREVE Mona Levacher, Director , Electric Vehicle offers - Groupe PSA This roundtable will be moderated by Yann Azran, Industry Expert - Mobility Makers The development of electrical vehicles for professional or private use is a major concern for the climate change and healthcare. Charging is a key factor to support this development and Enedis, the French DSO which operates 95% of the distribution grid in France, aims to co-build solutions for every use case of charging : at home, at work, on the street, at the car park or at a charge station. Today, the Charge Point Operators (CPO) and Mobility Services Providers (MSP) have been developing a large scale network of charge stations and interoperability that allows EV users to get charged during their journey. But 90% of charge is at home or at work, and 44% of French people live in collective housing : so, Enedis is committed to support condominiums and house landlords to design their collective EV charge solution.
Time : 14.00-14.40 Format : Keynote Speaker : Yael Rivkind, Director of Partnerships and Initatives What stops consumers from buying battery-powered EVs? Price, range and access to efficient charging stations, in that order. Today, prices have come down and vehicle operating ranges have increased—dramatically in some cases. With these changes, range anxiety, the fear that the car battery will run out before reaching the destination, is being replaced by experience anxiety, the fear that the ownership experience with an EV will be a series of headaches. In this session, Yael Rivkind, Director of Partnerships, will explore consumer needs and expectations and discuss the role that industry participants and government can play in alleviating experience anxiety, including consumer education, standards development, and the creation of new business models.
Time : 15.10-15.45 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Suzanne Jones, Mayor, City of Boulder, Colorado, USA Torben Heinemann, Head of transport, City of Leipzig, Germany Chen Jingyi, Project Manager, Planning and Development Bureau, Management Committee of Foshan Sino-German Industrial Services Zone, Foshan, China This round table will be moderated by Tsu-Jui Cheng, Program Manager and Global Coordinator, Sustainable Mobility, ICLEI World Secretariat, Bonn, Germany. The urban mobility landscape in cities from Shenzhen to Oslo to Santiago is shifting. Faced with deteriorated air quality, cities are issuing more and more pollution alerts to mitigate the harmful risk of breathing in bad air. It is increasingly clear that electric vehicles (EVs) will play a major role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality. For electrification to have its maximum benefits, EVs must be plugged into a green grid, yet even under a high-carbon grid, electric buses on a well-to-wheel basis emit 30 percent fewer CO2 emissions than diesel buses. While the electric revolution is happening, some questions are still unsolved, some more controversial than the others – how should waste batteries be handled? How can cities maximize the benefits of electrification while not encouraging more usage of private cars? This session will explore innovation pathways towards a cleaner energy and mobility system from three cities.
Time : 15.50-16.10 Format : Fireside chat Speakers : Juliette Antoine-Simon, General Director - IZIVIA Philippe Detours, General Partner - Demeter Accompanied by the metropolis of Lyon, IZIVIA and Demeter will deploy more than 600 new charging points for electric vehicles by the end of 2022. The objective: to develop local electric mobility and offer a network that meets all the charging needs of citizens.
Time : 16.15-16.50 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Hervé LEVIFVE, Technical adviser to Christophe Najdovski, Deputy Mayor of Paris in charge of transport, roads, travel and public space Alina TUERK, Strategy and Planning Manager at Transport for London Carl-Magnus NORDEN, Founder and CEO - Volta Trucks This roundtable will be moderated by Peter LAKIN, President - acompani The initiatives taken by major cities like London and Paris to improve air quality, will require buses and delivery vehicles to move from thermal to electric powertrains. These cities are also looking at legislation and other actions to improve road safety, especially for pedestrians and cyclists. The panel will discuss how cities can encourage the adoption of new truck models that meet the clean air and safety challenges. It will also look at a new design of a truck from Volta Trucks, which is planned to be a game changer in sustainable urban logistics.

Time : 12.10-12.30 Format : Fireside Chat Speaker : Clarisse Coste Palacios, Founding President of Mob-in This interview will be led by Patricia Laurent, Managing editor - Green Univers To date, EDPMs (motorized personal vehicles) do not yet have a legal existence. The Mobility Orientation Act (LOM) currently under review, and especially the imminent decree amending the law, should provide a legal framework that will probably bring certain constraints to the users of these vehicles. While it is true that the Insurance Code recognizes the legal existence of EDPMs imposing, in its art 211-1, an obligation to insure against liability in traffic as for any Motorized Land Vehicle (MVT), the management of traffic accidents by insurance companies is sometimes difficult due to the uncertainties of the law. During our conference, we will discuss the latest regulations in force and those expected to be issued in the coming months. We will also discuss the practical consequences of this new regulation on our insurance offers and remind you of the different types of insurance required by specialized companies or EDPM users.
Time : 12.35-13.10 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Eugenio Prieto Soto, Director, Metropolitan Area of the Aburrá Valley (AMVA), Colombia Monika Zimmermann, Expert, Consultant, Urban Sustainability; Former Deputy Secretary General, ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability This roundtable will be moderated by Tsu-Jui Cheng, Program Manager and Global Coordinator, Sustainable Mobility, ICLEI World Secretariat, Bonn, Germany Driven by economic growth and the increasing demand for goods, freight transportation is at the core of today’s global economy. It is responsible for nearly 40% of the overall transport emissions in 2015 but is expected to be at least equivalent to passenger transport by 2050. The latest estimate from the International Transport Forum (ITF) says that global freight volume will triple between 2015 and 2050 based on current demand. While urban freight issues are complex, good practices can be found from cities worldwide that are taking action to deliver sustainable urban freight. Many cities are starting to incorporate freight transport into their sustainable mobility plans or carbon emission reduction plans. In this session, we will discuss how ecologistics helps cities identify the importance of goods transportation and the benefits cities can receive when managing urban freight transport.

Lukas is sharing CityBee experience of making urban transportation sexy and stylish.
Time : 13.40-14.00 Format : Keynote Speaker : Dimitri Tsygalnitzky, VP Kapten Business More than ever, mobility is at the heart of the company's challenges. In Ile-de-France, 58% of travellers travel more than 3 times a week and this figure is exponential. Faced with this increase in business travel, employees naturally demand a certain level of comfort, while managers have an imminent need to understand and rationalize costs. The balance between the two, the one between the need for freedom on the one hand and control on the other, remains an ideal to which every company strives and is right to strive. Duty of care, bleisure, collaborative economy, CSR, multimodality... As many concepts as there are challenges for managing travel in companies. With this white paper, designed with the Euromonitor International research institute, we invite you to take a look behind the scenes at urban mobility.

Horaires : 11.55-12.30 Format : Round table Speakers : Charlotte Le Roux, Senior Associate, Hogan Lovells, Paris Lance Bultena, Senior Counsel, Hogan Lovells, Washington, D.C. Liang Xu, Partner, Hogan Lovells, Beijing This round table will be moderated by Patrick Ayad, Partner and Global Head of Automotive and Mobility, Hogan Lovells, Munich. The future of mobility is dramatically transforming the automotive industry due to advancements in technology. These exciting developments are creating regulatory disruption opportunities for autonomous, connected, electric, and shared vehicles and services. This new era, while providing exciting opportunities for both automotive and mobility industry players and consumers, also poses serious challenges to traditional legal and regulatory structures. The regulatory issues, be they privacy and data protection or product safety, pose complex challenges for policy makers and industry alike. Connected vehicles are computers on wheels. Connected vehicle solutions involve embedded communications modules (SIM cards and modems) managed by mobile operators via central platforms. Connected cars challenge traditional regulatory concepts in the telecommunications area. Which entity is the regulated telecoms provider? The mobile operator or the OEM, or someone else? In what countries is a telecoms license required? How do law enforcement data retention and surveillance rules apply to connected vehicle platforms? When do consumer protection laws related to SIM locking or roaming apply to connected car platforms? Connected vehicles also make new demands on spectrum. Short-range radar used to avoid collisions, as well as vehicle-to-vehicle communication links require reliable, interference-free spectrum resources that may be desired by other services. Setting aside good quality spectrum for connected vehicle applications will require thoughtful policy advocacy at national, regional, and international (ITU) levels.
Time : 12.35-13.10 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Stéphane Beaudet, vice-president Île-de-France Region, in charge of Transports Madelaine Masse, Head of urban studies at Arep, representative of the SUN team in the consultation « Les Routes du Futur du Grand Paris » Stéphane Labrunie, VP Partners & International - Kisio This round table will be moderated by Julien Chamussy, CEO of Fluctuo The concept of Mobility as a service is at the heart of the proposals formulated by the 4 teams of the international consultation "Les Routes du futur du Grand Paris" to optimise road traffic in Île-de-France by 2030 and 2050. It is perceived as fundamental because it provides an attractive alternative to the private car, by facilitating the combination of several modes of transport and offering passengers a mobility solution adapted to their needs. In this future revolution of mobility, what place should public power occupy? This session should open the debate between elected representatives and private operators on the role that public authorities, and in particular territorial authorities, must play in terms of governance and data regulation.
Time : 13.15-13.35 Format : Keynote Speaker : Carolina Castanheira, Head of Mobility Management The urban mobility ecosystem is changing fast, with investments in autonomous and shared mobility increasing drastically the digitalization of the mobility stack.

Time : 13.55-14.15 Format : Keynote Speaker : Teet Parks, Co-founder - COMODULE Ownership is dead, the future of mobility is sharing. It’s faster, cheaper and helps with congestion and pollution. Teet is going to explain how IoT mobility solutions will transform the industry.
Time : 14.20-14.55 Format : Roundtable Speakers : Ruud van der Ploeg, Secretary-general EMTA (European Metropolitan Transport Authorities) Hans Arby, CEO UBIGO Urban Mobility This round table will be moderated by Thomas Geier, Mobility & Transport Specialist - EMTA (European Metropolitan Transport Autorities) For about two years now, the mobility sector has been vividly discussing the concept of MaaS and related aspects of integrated mobility. Many sector players have with it been proclaiming a brighter future, demanding for fast changes in regulation and access to public space and data. The discussion has, however, often fallen short to address issues of effective governance and the role that public entities need to fulfil to ensure these concepts do contribute to the achievement of societal goals. This session briefly introduces the functionalities that, according to cities and transport authorities, define a sustainable mobility ecosystem. In the interactive discussion based on this public sector perspective, the experts in the panel and the session participants are invited to address the delicate issue of effective governance of the mobility ecosystem and debate where public sector involvement may be desirable or even necessary.

AI is the key to make Mobility As A Service (MaaS) possible by being the key to creating a faster, more straightforward, rewarding and personalised travel experience. It can simplify the process of shared mobility, taking care of all the complex steps involved in getting ready, buying tickets and making the journey and allowing customers to focus on what really matters to them: the emotional experience of the journey, whatever that may be.

Time : 16.45-17.10 Format : Fireside Chat Speakers : Robin Moradian, Partnership Manager, Splyt Marc Amblard, Founder and Managing Director of Orsay Consulting A large number of new mobility operators have emerged recently across the globe, each offering a limited choice of modes and geographic coverage. In parallel, most of us have come to rely on shared mobility ranging from airlines, to public transport, car sharing, micro-mobility and more. However, accessing all these modes anywhere requires multiple services or apps, but none really offers seamless multimodal journeys. How can we improve the accessibility to any mode anywhere, and ideally in a seamless fashion?
