Save The Date


To celebrate its 10th edition, the 2020 SIA VISION congress “Vehicle and Infrastructure Safety Improvement in Adverse Conditions” will be held in Paris on 7 and 8 October at La Cité des Sciences de la Villette, a place totally dedicated to technologies, a strong example for the vehicle Lighting & ADAS/AD community; especially young engineers and universities.


This biennial international congress organised and presented by SIA (the French Society of Automotive Engineers) was first held in 2002 and has been steadily growing ever since, with record participation of 650 attendees in 2018, up 24% from 2016. In 2020, more than seven hundred attendees are expected.

SIA VISION is a forum geared toward informational exchange amongst top-level scientists, engineers, and practitioners; directors, managers, department heads, and experts from industry, universities, and research centres. Its characteristic centrepiece is night drives with at least 30 different lighting and ADAS demonstrator cars, carrying groups of participants around the Mortefontaine race track to show off the real-world function of the latest innovations in lighting and ADAS.

Above all, there are networking opportunities for attendees and speakers, with a large-scale expo hall covering a wide range of products and services in the field of lighting, ADAS, and autonomy.


2020's event will show the progress of innovation in all the channels: new functions, ADB, OLEDs, lasers, LEDs, night vision, intelligent signal lights, sensors and detectors, virtual simulators for design and validation, and all the key topics for vision and road safety in relation with connectivity, ADAS and Autonomous Vehicles.


We look forward to seeing you in Paris on October 7 & 8, 2020 at SIA VISION, whether as a speaker, exhibitor, or attendee.
