Share your expertise at WCX 2021 - WCX Call for Papers - Body/Chassis/Occupant Protection and Pedestrian Safety/Structure

Automotive engineers are facing critical pain points as technology advances, impacting vehicle development on a daily basis.  As a subject matter expert facing these issues, SAE invites you to share your knowledge and experiences by preparing an abstract for WCX 2021.  The resulting manuscripts and/or oral presentations may help others solve similar problems or provide them with a better understanding on emerging technology advancements. WCX21 is integrating virtual & in-person components as it pivots to a hybrid event.  In doing so, WCX provides the opportunity for you to present in-person at the physical event or via a pre-recorded presentation as part of a virtual event component.  Submit your abstract now as travel is not required!
