  • Day 1 - Leadership Day: Features three executive keynote speakers, and three panel discussions highlighting: Automotive Innovators; State of Supply Chain - an Analyst's View; and State of the Business - OEM EE Leaders
  • Day 2 - Engineers Day: Includes in-depth technical presentations from industry experts in six tracks: Architecting to Enable and Scale; Open Source as an Enabler; People/Technical Workforce Transformation; Designing for an Experience; Technology Disruptors; and Leveraging Consumer Electronics
  • Day 3 - Partner Day: Technical programs from partner associations and organizations with a stake in the automotive electronics industry
Building on the roadmap that was created from the 40th anniversary program and prior, SAE 2016 Convergence will now set the course for developing technology for the future, and will focus on:
