2022 China-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance

The 2022 China-America Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be held July 18-20 as a meeting-within-a-meeting event. Sixty highly accomplished early-career engineers from China and the United States will meet for an intensive 3 day symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology in four areas: Wearable Electronics and Human Health, Water Sustainability, Additive Manufacturing and Beyond, and Food Safety in the Context of Big Data and Genomics. The event is intended to facilitate international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourage the creation of a transpacific network of world-class engineers. CAFOE is carried out in cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Engineering and supported by The Grainger Foundation and the National Science Foundation.

More information will be posted at a later date.
