Powertrains, Fuels & Lubricants Digital Summit - Call for papers

Abstracts due March 9th

Digital Summit September 28-30, 2021 With the unknown duration of the impacts of Covid-19, SAE has decided to hold the 2021 Powertrains, Fuels & Lubricants Meeting virtually.

In addition to published papers, authors will be asked to submit MP4 video files (voice over Powerpoint) to be part of the virtual programming. Papers and videos will be featured in SAE Mobilus at the conclusion of the summit. If you have content to publish and interest to present it virtually, please see the below topics and deadlines. We look forward to your contributions and thank you, in advance, for supporting SAE.
