Ottawa moves through the gears to host engineering Symposium in 2023

The International Association for Vehicle System Dynamics (IAVSD) has chosen Ottawa, Canada to host the 28th IAVSD Symposium on Dynamics of Vehicle on Roads and on Tracks, 21-25 August 2023. Host venue will be the Shaw Centre.

The IAVSD’s biannual conference brings together international researchers, scientists and engineers from government, academia and industry, in the field of ground vehicle dynamics.

To develop the event, the Ottawa IAVSD organising committee, including the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), Carleton University and Ottawa Tourism, has been working closely with Invest Ottawa and the Shaw Centre. This includes Invest Ottawa’s Area XO, a research and development complex that helps accelerate the commercial adoption of next-generation technology. Area XO includes a CAV (connected and autonomous vehicle) test track, which will be built into the delegate experience and conference programme.

Theresa Gatto, senior manager-business events at Ottawa Tourism, commented: “Invest Ottawa, The Shaw Centre and Ottawa Tourism launched a combined Think Ottawa programme to inspire key sectors and create ambassadors that would drive leading Association Congresses to the City.  This win is a perfect example of the three stakeholders working in partnership to create an inspiring solution for the client.”

The last time the Symposium was hosted in Canada was in 1989 at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario.
