Vehicle Dynamics and Mobility Electronics Call for Papers

Benefits of technical paper authorship with SAE are many, benefiting you and the industry at large. Build your professional network...receive considered for inclusion in SAE Journals...associate you and your company with SAE...contribute to the industry's body of technical knowledge.

However, tight schedules or the need to publish quickly can prevent some authors from submitting papers through SAE's main publishing mechanism, its technical conferences.

To overcome these barriers, SAE is pleased to introduce an alternative approach to publishing with the mobility industry's leading technical society—one that is independent of events and, therefore, not subject to deadlines driven by conference dates.

Now, authors who want their technical findings to become part of the society's vast, globally respected paper collection can submit abstracts according to specific SAE-identified topics invited through paper calls such as this one. No need to wait for an appropriate topic/technology fit with an established conference.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts of 300 to 500 words in length, present facts that are new and significant, and should include results achieved, if applicable. Abstracts, including paper title, author name(s), mailing address, telephone number, facsimile number, and email address, should be submitted on these topics online. This new publishing avenue uses SAE's current technical paper review process through MyTechZone.

Submit papers for publication—with ultimate consideration for SAE Journal publication—on any of the following specific subjects within the topic categories of Vehicle Dynamics and Mobility Electronics:

Vehicle Dynamics

  • Electronics Stability Controls
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring
  • Vehicle Roll Dynamics

    For example, including but not limited to...

    • Tire-road friction limits
    • Turning and lateral weight transfer
    • Brake system balance and brake proportioning
    • Anti-lock brake system (ABS) operation
    • Electronic stability control (ESC) systems
    • Interactions of brake, steering, suspension, and powertrain systems

Mobility Electronics

  • Navigation Systems
  • Automotive Radar
  • Smart Grid

    For example, including but not limited to...

    • Intellidrive technologies
    • DSRC — Digital Short-Range Communications
    • Driver Distraction Considerations
    • Electric Vehicle Safety Technologies
    • Electric Vehicle Technologies
    • Vehicle Electrification Technologies
    • High Voltage Component Systems (i.e., A/C, etc.)
    • Inverter Technologies
    • OBD
    • Hazardous Material and End of Life Requirements

>>NOTE: While not tied to conference deadlines, SAE does ask that you consider the following dates to ensure publication of your papers in the 2010 calendar year.
