Technical Sessions

The solutions-oriented Technical Sessions at SAE Noise and Vibration Conference and Exhibition provide the perfect opportunity for mobility engineering professionals to discover, collaborate, and engage with peers from around the globe. These Technical Sessions, developed by industry professionals to maximize industry relevance, are designed to allow industry members of all levels to gather relevant and stimulating information to enhance skills and creativity today.

Chat with the Experts

As an extension of the Technical Program, Chat with the Experts discussion groups create an informal environment between audience and expert to explore technical issues, pose questions of concern, and share lessons learned. The goal of these chat sessions is to enhance technical understanding and facilitate interactive problem solving.

Each chat begins with a five- to 10-minute introspective overview on critical items on the subject to be addressed, given by the expert. Then, each expert will facilitate dialogue on concerns, issues, or questions about the given subject with a group of up to 20 attendees. Each attendee is encouraged to pose questions, share experiences, and explore practical solutions.
