The First Asia-Europe International Symposium on Intelligent Vehicle will be held on May 22-24, 2007 at Shanghai Oriental Land, Shanghai. This symposium is organized by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and supported by EU Asia-IT&C Programme CyberC3 Project, French-Asia ICT Programme FACT Project and Shanghai Oriental Land. More than 100 participants from China, France, Portugal, Holland, Belgium, Singapore, Korea, Japan, etc., are expected to attend the symposium.

The main aims of this symposium are to exchange new idea and the latest research results in the field of intelligent vehicles, to explore development and application perspective of Cybernetic Transport System in Asia and Europe, and to promote further technology exchange and friendly cooperation among Asia-Europe collaborators.

During the three-day symposium, the CyberC3 Driverless System, which isdeveloped under close cooperation among Asian and European researchers will be demonstrated with some other demonstration by partners from the CyberC3 Project and the FACT project. We are glad to invite you to attend this symposium and relevant demonstration activities. With your participation and support, we believe this symposium can be a big success. Looking forwards to see you in the Shanghai Oriental Land.
