The CSCS is ACM’s flagship Car IT event. We are bringing together the likes of scientists, engineers, business representatives and everyone who shares a passion for solving the myriad of complex problems of in-vehicular technology and it’s application in automation, driver/vehicular safety, and driving system security.

This year we are happy to invite you to the symposium to discuss future challenges in artificial intelligence and security for autonomous vehicles.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic situation, we are welcoming you online for an exciting online conference experience. Expect exciting interactive opportunities with the presenters throughout the whole day.
