Call for Papers

Prospective authors willing to write a paper and/or give an oral presentation are invited to submit abstracts of 300 words or less for review by the Scientific Committee.

Abstracts will have to be submitted on-line and will be managed through the SAE My Tech Zone tool. Upon submission, a tracking number will be sent by email to the corresponding author. The deadline for the abstract submission has been extended to January 3rd, 2022.

If abstract is accepted, a review-ready manuscript will be invited (to be submitted by January 21st, 2022), the acceptance of which will be based on an organizer moderated peer-review process.

Final manuscripts and copyright assignments will be due by April 26th, 2022. Manuscripts received after  this date will not be published.

If the paper is approved for publication, please note that it may or may not be selected for oral presentation at a conference. The decision of the Scientific Committee will be based on the subject matter of the paper, on its relevance to the conference topic, on the review process results and on the number of presentation slots available. One or more poster sessions could be scheduled to host papers for which a presentation slot could not be found.

Whether or not an oral presentation slot is scheduled, the paper, if approved, will be published. Authors should prepare their papers according to SAE International format.
