Dear Colleague,


It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 2010 International Forum on Electric Vehicle (IFEV), which will be held at KAIST, Daejeon, Korea, from June 17 to 19, 2010, under the joint sponsorship of KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) and KATECH (Korea Automotive Technology Institute).
We are witnessing a major transformation of the automotive industry in response to the need to reduce CO2 emission and the dependence on petroleum. Industry and academia have proposed many different solutions – hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery powered, on-line electric vehicle, and others. We should examine and understand these proposed solutions from technological, economic, and societal perspective. The purpose of the proposed IFEV is to assess the state of various technologies and assess the future direction of autonomous vehicle that can replace the cars with internal combustion (IC) engines.
This forum should be of value to all participants, including various government agencies in all countries, as they develop a road map for development of green vehicles and a national policy of ‘Low Carbon Green Growth.’
At KAIST, we have been developing the On-Line Electric Vehicle (OLEV) system that is powered by the electricity supplied from underground cables without any mechanical contact while in motion. It also has a small battery on board to make it autonomous on roads without the underground cable. KAIST has installed an OLEV system in the Seoul Grand Park, which has been operational since March 2010. We will demonstrate the OLEV system at the Forum.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at the 2010 International Forum on Electric Vehicle on June 17-19, 2010.


Sincerely yours,
