Engineering the Future

2nd ASCENT Conference 2021
Trends & Challenges in Automotive Engineering

18 March, 2021 @ 8:00 am 19 March, 2021 @ 3:00 pm MET -7

“In a time where movement is limited, mobility has never been more essential.”

Frank Menchaca, SAE’s Chief Growth Officer


This conference has the objective to unite the international engineering community to directly help and shape the future of our societies. In the frame of the ASCENT project we try to connect engineers, students, academics and companies while discussing and reviewing relevant engineering topics. Bringing these target groups together allows us to enrich the international ASCENT Network.

The 1st ASCENT Cross-Border Conference was held in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2020 and inaugurated the ASCENT Network. This is the announcement of the 2nd ASCENT Conference, which is organized by our partner university IBEROAMERICANA (IBERO) in Mexico City. The main aim of this conference is to unite international experts, students and companies, acting in the automotive industry. The conference is part of the ASCENT project “Competence centres for automotive engineering to increase the positive impact on regional development in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico”, co-funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme.

This conference will provide a lively and informal virtual venue. A variety of trends & challenges regarding automotive engineering can be presented and discussed in an interdisciplinary and creative environment. The focus will be on the current trends such as lightweight design, industry 4.0, connectivity as well as practices experienced in different contexts implying the role of mechanics in contributing to the development in social, economic, and environmental perspectives in the field of automotive engineering.

The scientific committee, therefore, seeks stimulating papers that will make a contribution to a better future through efficient and environmental friendly mobility concepts and designs. Conceptual, analytical and empirical papers as well as case studies are all welcome.
