Automotive Innovation Facility

Event is free. Registration required.

The 2014 Automotive History Conference continues the Society's tradition of a biennial symposium of researchers and academic professionals who will present their recent work on the history of the motor industry, its products and their impact on social and cultural development. The conference is co-sponsored by the Revs Program at Stanford University and will take place at the VAIL Automotive Innovation Facility on the Stanford campus with two days of seminars focusing on the conference theme: The Evolution of Automotive Technology — the continuing development of the motor vehicle and its process of manufacture over a 120-year history. Although considered by many to have reached a plateau a half-century ago, the industry and its products in recent years have entered a new phase of creative development addressing issues once thought resolved responding to new economic, social and environmental conditions through fundamental research.
