The IMechE is pleased to announce Braking 2009, a 2-day event to explore the recent advances and future prospects in vehicle braking technology.

The increasing levels of sophistication and complexity of modern passenger cars and commercial vehicles has two main drivers:

- Improving safety for both the vehicle occupants and other road users
- Environmental requirements such as energy conservation and the reduction of harmful emissions

The 2-day conference, to be held in York, will focus on:

- Materials and Design
- Brake refinement
- Energy efficient actuation systems
- Human factors engineering and active safety
- Environmental and infrastructure issues

Synopses of papers comprising up to 250 words should be submitted by 16 June 2008. Selected authors will then be invited to submit draft papers up to 4000 words in length by 10 Nov 2008.
