WCX 2022: Digital Only Experience


Understanding the impact of travel restrictions from COVID, SAE International remains focused on our goal of providing technical and business education on the biggest issues facing our industry to the engineering community. SAE will make a limited amount of content available as part of a WCX 2022 digital only package. Digital content is available in 2 ways: livestreamed and on-demand (pre-recorded) presentations- both available through the digital platform.

On-Demand Presentations

Unfortunately, not every author is able to make it to WCX and present “in person”.  So that you can still gain the critical insight of their work, we invited all authors of the WCX technical sessions to provide a pre-recorded presentation.  We have over 500 pre-recorded technical presentations available to be viewed on-demand via the digital platform to those registered for the “digital only“ package.
