Jones invited to NAE 2017 Frontiers of Engineering Symposium
Associate Professor Anya Jones has been invited to the 2017 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. The Frontiers of Engineering meeting is organized annually by the National Academy of Engineering and brings together a select group of emerging engineering leaders from industry, academia, and government labs. The event will be held September 25-27, 2017 in Hartford, CT.
Four major topics will be explored at the symposium: “Mega-Tall Buildings and Other Future Places of Work”; “Energy Strategies to Power Our Future”; “Unraveling the Complexity of the Brain”; and “Machines That Teach Themselves.” Speakers will give presentations on pioneering research and technical work related to each topic. The meeting is designed to allow ample time for Q&A and discussion during the formal sessions and also provides many informal opportunities for exchange among the participants.
About the symposium
NAE's U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium is a three-day meeting that brings together a select group of the nation's outstanding young engineers (aged 30-45) from industry, academia, and government to discuss pioneering technical and leading-edge research in a variety of engineering fields. The annual event provides an opportunity for approximately 100 leading young engineers to learn about cutting-edge developments in fields other than their own, thereby facilitating cross-disciplinary collaboration and the transfer of new approaches and techniques. Through both formal sessions and informal discussions, the meetings have proven an effective mechanism for the establishment of cross-disciplinary and cross-sector contacts among future engineering leaders.
Established in 1964, the NAE is an independent, nonprofit institution that provides leadership and guidance to the nation on the application of engineering resources to vital issues.
