Automotive industry experts will be in Greenville Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss topics ranging from transportation mobility to the outlook of global fuels.

The Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers of America, or SIGMA, will hold the Masters Program at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research Tuesday and Wednesday.

According to a news release, auto company CEOs, owners and technical officers will participate in various break-out sessions to discuss fuels and “novel modes of combustion, processing and catalysis, vehicle electrification, and the impact of autonomous driving on mobility.”

“The program has attracted a diverse set of speakers, who will set the stage for stimulating conversation,” said Ryan McNutt, CEO of SIGMA, in the release. “Their credentials are a testament to the importance of the event.”

Speakers include Julian Weber, head of innovation projects e-mobility at the BMW Group who will discuss the future of mobility. He will talk via BMW’s headquarters in Munich. Educators from Clemson and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory will talk about fuels and new vehicles.

“The program puts our department’s top talent and the world-class facilities at CU-ICAR in the automotive spotlight for two days,” said Zoran Flilip, chairman of the Department of Automotive Engineering at Clemson. “We look forward to showing our guests all that Clemson and the Upstate have to offer.”
