The conference will be held in conjunction with the SAE World Congress next spring. Preliminary dates are March 5-7, 2002.
The conference, focused on mobile electronics and telematics, was expected to have more than 1,000 attendees, including exhibitors, says Mark Burd, SAE spokesman.
SAE has postponed several meetings since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11:
Last week, the SAE Detroit Section canceled its Global Leadership Conference at the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia, which had been set for October.
SAE's November Truck and Bus Conference, to be held in Chicago, and its October Brake Colloquium in New Orleans are unaffected.
Says Burd: "We have a little bit more time of working out the logistics …. They are drawing a lot more national, as opposed to an international audience, which makes travel easier."
