SAE International Journal of Commercial Vehicles

Special Issue of COMVEC™ Papers

Call for Papers

Submissions are now being solicited for a special issue of SAE International Journal of Commercial Vehicles, which will be tied to papers presented at COMVEC 2020. The industry is being faced with more stringent global emission regulations, improvements through electrification, and a push toward autonomous driving, while not forgetting the importance of ADAS, fuel economy, and other technology improvements resulting in increased performance and profitability.

Topics under consideration for the special issue are:

  • ADAS
  • Aerodynamics
  • After-Treatment Advances
  • Alternative Fuels
  • Automated Vehicles
  • Brakes and Steering Developments
  • Chassis and Suspension Technologies
  • Electrification
  • Freight Mobility
  • New Powertrain Developments
  • Platooning

In addition to regular journal articles, technical papers will be considered for this special issue. If not appropriate for journal publication, a paper may still be published through our written-only technical paper portal, but should first be submitted through the journal portal. Only papers presented at COMVEC 2020 should be submitted for consideration in this special issue. If not presented at COMVEC 2020, accepted manuscripts will be transferred to a regular issue of the journal.
