The Indo-U.S. Frontiers of Engineering (IAFOE) program aims to bring together outstanding, early-career Indian and American engineers from industry, universities, and other research institutions to introduce their areas of engineering research and technical work, thereby facilitating an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge and methodology that could eventually lead to collaborative networks of engineers from the two countries.
IAFOE was initiated in 2005 and the first symposium was held in March 2006. Symposia are held every other year, with the U.S. and India taking turns hosting the event. The total number of participants, including organizers, speakers, and other participants, numbers approximately 60, with 30 engineers from each country.
The Indo-U.S. Science & Technology Forum sponsors this event. Participation is by invitation only.
