The 2014 ARC-CSI Crash conference will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada June 2-5. This is the largest crash event of the year. Early registration ends on April 19, 2014 (save $200). In addition, NAPARS and ARC Network members also save an additional $50 off registration!
The ARC-CSI Crash Conference qualifies for ACTAR CEUs (typically between 24-28 units). There will also be an ACTAR exam on the Sunday before ARC-CSI begins.
Also, the ARC-CSI Crash Team Boot Camp is filling up, only a couple spots left for the opportunity to be a part of the crash team and learn all about crash testing and what goes on behind the scenes.

To kick off the 2014 ARC-CSI Crash Conference, we will be transporting all attendees on a fleet of coach style buses to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for a full day of live, fully instrumented crash testing. Attendees are welcome to video tape, photograph and inspect the crashes. Lunch will be provided.
The crash test plan for the 2014 ARC-CSI Crash Conference is shaping up to be another unique and exciting combination of tests with a variety of focus areas. Tied in to some of the presentations, the test focus areas for 2014 include offset frontal crashes with and without rotation, low delta-V crashes with a look at previously under explored data the effect of wheel slip, how improper or inadequate repairs on a previously crashed vehicle effect subsequent crash performance and more.
We already have another bus and several cars selected for this year's test series which, as in years past, will be the basis for a data, video and photo-packed DVD to be distributed at the end of the conference.
As always we will also have a large vendor area where you can visit the vendor booths during the catered breakfast and lunches as well as all the coffee and snack breaks. The following vendors are registered: 4N6XPRT Systems, ARC Network, ARAS 360, Cad Zone, Crash Data Group, Engineering Dynamics, Laser Technology, Leica Geosystems, MapScenes, NAPARS, Racelogic USA, and Visual Statement. We anticipate about 20 different vendors.
Laser Technologies will also be hosting the "Hospitality Suite" which will be open to attendees on Tuesday and Wednesday evening after the conference. This is a private suite where attendees can come a network and relax with their peers. The hospitality suite is catered with complimentary snacks and beverages.
Hope to see you at the conference. http://www.arccsi.com
