The 2023 Japan-America Frontiers of Engineering symposium was held July 17-20 in Tokyo, Japan. Sixty of the most promising early career engineers from Japan and the United States met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology in four areas: Materials by Design; Computational Approaches to Address Infectious Diseases; The Arduous and Exciting Path to the Development of Successful Mobility Exoskeletons; and Circular Economy. 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. The JAFOE meeting is carried out in cooperation with the Engineering Academy of Japan and is supported by The Grainger Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), the Waseda Institute for Advanced Study (WIAS), and the Waseda University faculty of science and engineering.
