IS Auto US 2016- Call for Papers

Following our successful European IS Auto event, now in its third year, growing considerably and the leading event for bringing the automotive industry together with sensor technology, we are excited to be launching IS Auto Americas

The event will take place immediately after our IS Americas conference and will bring together senior industry leaders to address the key challenges in the market: When will autonomous vehicles take off? What are the key sensor requirements for major OEM’s working on next generation ADAS? How can the sensor ecosystem be improved? How can the key pain points be overcome?

If you can contribute answers, opinions and solutions to address these questions we’d like to hear from you. The topics below will form our preliminary agenda.

If you would like to cover one of these topics or propose a new relevant subject please submit your title, a brief abstract and your biographical information to Amanda Crabbe, Conference Director at acrabbe@smithers.com for review by our board of industry advisors
