November 15-17, 2021 Virtual
The 2020 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be RESCHEDULED for October or November in 2021 and held at Nokia in Murray Hill, New Jersey. About 60 outstanding engineers under the age of 45 will meet for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four areas: Advances in Deep Learning for ICT Problems, Applications and Uses of Graphene, Modernizing the Electrical Grid, and Technologies for the Detection and Treatment of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. The event facilitates international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promotes the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourages the creation of a transatlantic network of world-class engineers.
The symposium will be hosted in partnership with the European Council of Academies of Applied Sciences, Technologies, and Engineering. The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) is serving as the administrator and organizer for the European side of the event.
More information will be posted as it develops.
