With 75 days to go for the 2021 edition of the biennial Symposium on International Automotive Technology (SIAT), the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) has opened registrations, both for attendees and participating companies. Registrations can be done at

The benchmark global event, to be held from September 29-October 1, serves as a forum for exchange of ideas and brainstorming for all stakeholders of the automotive industry, with participation of eminent experts worldwide in various automotive areas.

The 17th edition, which is organised by ARAI, in association with SAE India and SAE International (USA) is being held virtually this year in view of the need for social distancing and pandemic-related protocol. Previously, all earlier SIATs were held physically at the sprawling ARAI campus in Pune.

Theme: ‘Redefining Mobility for the Future’
The central theme of SIAT 2021 is ‘Redefining Mobility for the Future’, which will see Indian and global experts debate and discuss the latest industry trends and futuristic mobility challenges.

Eminent experts from all over the world will present over 200 technical papers, including 40 keynotes, on various subjects.

Apart from the symposium proceedings, a Technical Reference Bulletin containing technical articles, case studies and product information will be published digitally. Also, SIAT Expo 2021, which will be held concurrently, will be a platform for a wide range of companies to showcase their products, technologies, innovations and services through various virtual stalls.

Autocar Professional, the No. 1 automotive B2B magazine and online entity, is the official media partner to SIAT 2021.
