2009 German-American Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance
Key Contacts

The twelfth annual German-American Frontiers of Engineering symposium was held in Potsdam, Germany in April, 2009.  Co-chaired by Tresa Pollock of University of Michigan and Kai Sundmacher or the Max-Planck-Institute, this meeting covered the following topics: Complex Systems Design and Controls, Renewable Energy, Biosystems Engineering, and Materials for Extreme Environments.

GAFOE aims to bring together outstanding, early-career German 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. The total number of participants, including organizers, speakers, and other participants, numbers approximately 60, with 30 engineers from each country. Participation is by invitation only.
