SAE 101: INNOVATIONS IN MOBILITY
CONFERENCE
Complacency is a killer not just among automotive
companies in an era of great change and expansion, but
also among professional societies serving that industry
sector. Which is why SAE International is launching
the Innovations in Mobility (IIM) conference, slated for
October 29-31 in Novi, Mich.
"No organization can be complacent in this era,"
IIM Steering Committee member Carla Bailo told
MOMENTUM in explaining the motivation for the new
event. "The automotive industry is proceeding rapidly in
this disruptive environment of mobility. Innovations are
happening daily. SAE must lead in this arena and bring
together the industry to discuss all challenges."
Bailo, past SAE Vice President - Automotive, is CEO of
the Center for Automotive Research.
"SAE needs to continue to expand its scope similar to
the industry it represents," she continued. "This means
evolving technology must be a part of the conference
repertoire."
What spurred the idea for an all-encompassing
conference featuring invitation-only presenters was
identification by an internal SAE strategy team of
eight key technology and workforce focus areas that
should guide the organization's product initiatives
going forward. Establishment of focus areas in late
2017 coincided with an annual SAE Events staff retreat
in which they kicked around ideas about existing and
potential conferences.
The focus areas were announced to the events team
at the retreat. "We were having a discussion about

Two students and two young professionals will be given an
opportunity to present technical papers at Innovations in Mobility
as part of a special contest sponsored by SAE's Membership
business unit. Pictured here is Clemson University Ph.D. student

goals for upcoming years, and several team members asked why we
don't collaborate with the rest of the organization to put on an event
that supports some of SAE major focus areas," recalled Frank Bokulich,
SAE Content Developer Manager-Events. "Then we started looking at
our events portfolio and tried to determine in what areas we needed to
create new content and in what areas we already had content."
Staff then worked with the organizers of several smaller SAE
conferences and did a lot of work on its own to put together a larger,
integrated IIM conference that features five tracks "faithful to the eight
focus areas," said Bokulich. The five tracks are:
* Automated and Unmanned Mobility
* Advanced Propulsion
* Smart Mobility and Infrastructure
* Smart Manufacturing
* NextGen Materials
IIM planning brought together not only diverse voices from industry,
but also SAE staff units that operate independently for the most part.
The SAE Membership unit, for example, had the idea of holding a
technical paper competition. Two winners each from the two categories
of "young professional" and "student" will get to present their papers as
part of the IIM program. Workforce development is one of the eight key
focus areas for SAE.
In some conferences, young professionals and students are scheduled
as a group, in their own special session. But it was decided for the IIM
paper contest that they would be incorporated into the regular program
so that they would be able to present "shoulder to shoulder with
professional engineers who may be 50- or 60-year-old subject matter
experts," said Bokulich. "We've had lot of interest in the technical paper
contest and have received a lot of great submissions." (The submission
period has closed.)
IIM differs from SAE's WCX event in that there is no open call for
papers for the former, and all speakers (except technical paper contest
winners) are invited. IIM will feature more than 40 technical sessions,
more than 200 speakers, and more than 15 keynotes.
