Starting Tuesday, September 26th and going through September 28th, AVCC’s working groups will begin a series of break-out sessions that will highlight the most pressing technical topics in their respective spaces. For the first time ever, we are opening the working group meetings up to the industry attendees who are interested in learning more about what happens “behind closed doors” as AVCC members collaborate to create industry reports and recommendations. Are you interested in automotive:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Benchmarking
  • Software Portability
  • Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • Data Architecture

Then join us for technical deep dives and invited speakers. And, for the first time ever, the joint AVCC-MLCommons Automotive Benchmark Task Force will meet in-person to continue their important work on defining the non-differentiated building blocks for automated and autonomous driving. 

Technical work and industry expert presentations are only part of the event – what happens in less formal settings is as important as the other work we do! Breakfasts, coffee breaks, lunches, dinners, cocktail receptions and social events are all part of the program. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to shake hands and get to know people better in a fun and inviting environment. Highlights include:

  • Tuesday Evening: Social Dinner & Networking Event
  • Wednesday Late Afternoon: Cocktail Reception & Networking Event

More information and schedule coming soon. Approximately one month before the event we will publish a local guide of “Recommended Things to Do in Cambridge” for you to plan personal entertainment and dining options.
