L3Pilot Summer School - virtual event


Update 8 July 2020: After monitoring the global health landscape, and evaluating all governmental national advisories, we have decided to turn the L3Pilot Summer School, scheduled to be held in Athens, Greece on 9-10 September 2020, into a virtual event.

More details regarding the agenda will follow shortly.


With a focus on the theory and practice of Automated Driving Implementation and Testing, L3Pilot invites researchers, PhD students, developers, technicians and other professionals to learn more about  the progress of the largest European pilot-testing of SAE Level 3 driving functions implemented by L3Pilot partners as well as to discuss the latest findings and main challenges in the areas of Automated Driving Technology (AD), namely: the key enablers of AD, the Testing and Validation Framework, the AD Human Factors in automotive engineering and the Impact Assessment of the AD Deployment.

During the L3Pilot Summer School prominent speakers from academia and industry, both internal and external to the L3Pilot consortium, as well as key-experts from other European projects and international initiatives in the field, will join the event to thoroughly present the latest SoA developments, exchange knowledge and contribute to the ongoing discussions about the future of AD.

The Summer School will also provide the ground for senior and junior researchers and PhD students to expand their expertise and networks and present their research work through a dedicated poster area to a number of academics and highly qualified professionals in the field.



The L3Pilot Summer School will take place as a virtual event.

Call for posters

A poster area will be shown in parallel. The call for poster submission is closed.

Posters will show on all research topics that are related to the theory and practice of Automated Driving (AD) Implementation and Testing including, but not restricted to most recent developments, future directions or updates to establish approaches in the following topics:

  • Key Enablers of AD
  • Human Factors relevant to AD in automotive engineering
  • Handling data for automation (Large scale data and Simulation methods)
  • Needed Testing and Validation Framework and Practices

Please note that posters that are reviewed positively and are eligible for acceptance will be served on first come principle since the space is limited.
