International Conference on Advances in Vehicle Structures & Systems, Feb./Mar. 2011, India.

I'm currently planning for an "International Conference on Advances in Vehicle Structures & Systems - ICAVSS" either in Chennai or Bengaluru (India) during mid-Feb/Mar 2011. This is an initiative lead by MechAero Foundation based in New Perungalathur, Chennai, India. Discussions are in place to organise at MIT Campus (Chennai) or IISc (Bengaluru) or by a consortium of private engineering colleges near Tambaram. In this regard, I would like to hear about your participation - to present your work (Plenary address, Keynote address, Thematic Session Chair/Co-Chair) and/or potentially sponsor the event. 

A first call for papers is in draft at the moment.
