2019 China-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance

The 2019 China-America Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be held June 20-22 in San Diego, California. Sixty of the most promising engineers under the age of 45 from China and the United States will meet for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology in four areas: New Materials, Frontiers of Neuroengineering for Restoring Human Sensory and Motor Functions, 5G Wireless Communication Technology, and Smart Cities. 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.

The National Academy of Engineering would like to express its gratitude to Qualcomm, The Grainger Foundation, and the National Science Foundation for their support of the 2019 CAFOE Symposium.
