I-CAR will return to the SEMA Show 2011, Nov. 1-4 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The following sessions will be available: Aluminum Intensive Vehicles Structures, Automotive Aluminum MIG Welding Equipment and Techniques, Advanced High-Strength Steel Structures Design and Repair, and Advanced Lightweight Vehicle Technology and Repair.
