Year Two Fall Workshop Set for MathWorks’ Natick Campus

With Year 2 of EcoCAR 2: Plugging In to the Future officially underway, MathWorks is eagerly waiting to host everyone at this year’s Fall Workshop at their Natick, MA campus September 26-30, 2012.

Throughout the workshop, teams will be participating in multi-track training featuring competition sponsors General Motors, MathWorks, dSPACE, A123 Systems, Freescale, Vector, Siemens, CD-adapco, Magna Powertrain and more.

At the Fall Workshop, the teams will receive an update on Year Two competition rules, upcoming deliverables and EcoCAR events for the coming year.  The teams will also have the opportunity to receive valuable and extensive training in donated software and components from competition-level sponsors.

In addition to the technical training and sessions, communications managers and business managers will each have a dedicated track in which they will learn about the communications and business deliverables for the year.  The communications managers will participate in media relations and video production training, while the business managers will focus on training involving project management and sponsor relations.

Over the five day workshop, teams will also have the opportunity to attend a Sponsor Social Networking and Recruiting event and a fun night at F1 Boston!

Organizers are hard at work preparing for the Fall Workshop for Year 2 of EcoCAR 2. Registration for the workshop will launch in mid-August, so stay tuned to the Green Garage Blog for registration details.

We look forward to seeing all 15 teams, sponsors and organizers at the Fall Workshop!
