SAE 2012 Summer Technology Week

August 14-17, 2012
Tianjin, China

SAE International is responding to requests for technical information and discussions on topics that are of great interest to engineers and technologists serving the off-highway, on-highway, light passenger car and battery marketplaces in China by offering one-day symposia, or all oral programs. The packaging of these co-located programs is being referred to as a Technology Week and they will be offered on a quarterly basis. Topics of clean energy, vehicle efficiencies, battery technology, and all related standards will be featured.

The first Technology Week is scheduled over the dates of August 14-17 at the Renaissance Convention Center Hotel in Tianjin, China. Attendees may opt to register for one day or multiple days of their choosing.
