Welcome to the International Stuttgart Conference on Automotive Production


The SCAP series addresses advances in robotics & automation, production logistics and innovative production technologies for future automotive production environments. Together with its partners ARENA2036, Fraunhofer IPA and the University of Stuttgart, this conference gives you a deep insight into new and important topics regarding the automotive production.

On 26 September 2019, the conference »Stuttgarter Tagung zur Zukunft der Automobilproduktion« took place for the very first time, organised and carried out by Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA.

This year on the 9th and 10th of November the event will be continued. With the new title »SCAP – Stuttgart Conference on the Future of Automobile Production«, it again offers a unique platform for your research topics on all aspects of automobile production.

It deals with future issues across all trades and of interest to all market participants. With several tracks running in parallel, the conference offers a broad overview of current topics concerning automobile production.

Impulse lectures from the automotive industry aim to identify the current fields of action and needs of automotive value creation in the complex field of transformation. In combination with scientific contributions from research institutes, active in the automotive field, possible solutions are presented and discussed with the people attending the conference.

We are looking forward welcoming you in our ARENA2036!
