Materials and Lightweighting

WCX features about 20 different sessions and more than 125 subject matter experts that address subjects critical to future vehicle development and lightweighting.  Sessions focus on the criticality of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, composites, plastics, polymers, and other lightweight materials like graphene.

We are seeking your expertise and willingness to share knowledge by preparing an abstract for manuscript publication or oral presentation that addresses critical pain points engineers are experiencing with solutions that will help them solve issues on technology development and integration that affect day-to-day vehicle development.

Submission period:
June 1 - September 13, 2022

If your submission is selected by the SAE committee, you will share your technical paper and present your work at WCX 2023.
