Date 17 & 18 March 2021
Location Paris, France
Organised by SIA


Due to growing concerns and new measures taken by governments and companies regarding the COVID-19, and after consulting the conference’s steering committee, we would  like to inform you that our “SIA VISION Conference” initially planned on October 7th & 8th, 2020 will be rescheduled to March 17th & 18th, 2021 in the same venue, same exhibition hall and same set-up.

As you can imagine, this was not at all an easy decision, but we are glad to keep the 10th edition of our Lighting & ADAS conference up and running.

We could have decided to digitalize our conference but we are convinced of the importance of keeping SIA VISION as a face to face event as we are more than confident that it will be a great opportunity for all to meet again, exchange and network after this difficult and long time.

Of course, should the tragic current situation remains beginning of January 2021, we will adapt the event accordingly.

We are more than confident in carrying our great Lighting & Adas event on March 17th & 18th, 2021 and we would like to reassure you of our total dedication to the realization of such an important congress for the experts’ communities.

The 10th edition of SIA VISION will continue in its usual format - plenary lectures in the auditorium and an exhibition of nearly 30 companies in the 3 adjoining levels – and today, the SIA organisation team backed up by the Steering and Scientific Committees of SIA VISION want to ensure you that we take into great deal your security and that our event will be held in compliance with all the regulations in force in terms of hygiene and distancing to allow you to network, learn and meet in the best possible arrangements and safety.

Bearing in mind the Europe-wide challenges and R&D programmes relative to road safety, and in the light of the success of the first V.I.S.I.O.N. congress in September 2002, the SIA and its partners - vehicle and equipment manufacturers, research organisations and public authorities - have decided to organize the 10th edition of SIA VISION on 17 & 18 March, 2021 in Paris, France.

Considering the number and severity of accidents occurring at night and/or in poor weather conditions, it is now necessary to re-examine their causes and the possible ways of improving safety, with the support of the world’s top authorities in the field.

The International SIA VISION Congress will also attempt to promote methods of bringing about significant reductions in the risks faced and to improve driver and pedestrian safety in such poor conditions.

This 10th Congress organised by the French Society of Automotive Engineers (SIA) will be held at Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in Paris and will bring together the major players in the fields affected by such problems.

WARNING! Due to the COVID situation, the Night Drive Tests are on hold for the time being, we will keep you posted on the feasibility as soon as we can.

We look forward to welcoming you in Paris next March 2021 for a new edition of our great congress!
Yours sincerely,

Hector Fratty
Chairman of SIA VISION International Congress
