18th International Conference of Women Engineers and Scientists

Established in 1964 and hosted every 3 years, ICWES is the flagship event of the International Network of Women Engineers and Scientists. The University of Warwick and the International Network of Women Engineers and Scientists (INWES), hosted ICWES18 online on 1-3 September 2021, where female engineers and scientists from all over the world met virtually to present and discuss a range of topics encompassed by the conference theme of Global Humanitarian Challenges.

The fully online ICWES18 offered the same vibrant programming, impactful networking, and opportunities to reflect and connect over the emerging and salient topics in our conference topics. The virtual conference included our regular offerings and opportunities for engagement, including sessions, workshops and summits, keynotes, and space to connect with sponsors and peers from across the globe. Moving our face-to-face conference to a fully online format presented us with the unique opportunity to spotlight the best of what the online modality affords – meaningful collaboration and the ability to reflect and connect with colleagues around the world.
