On behalf of the School of Engineering, The University of Warwick, and the Warwick Conferences, I wish to invite the 18th International Conference of Women Engineers and Scientists (ICWES 18) to University of Warwick, Coventry, United Kingdom in 2020.
Warwick is a leading university, forward-looking and ambitious, flexible and free-thinking, quick to explore new ideas, to exploit fresh opportunities and to take well considered risks. Our vision is to be a world-class university. One with a dynamic, enterprising approach to solving global challenges. We strive to be the best across research and teaching, as well as in everything that supports what we do. We strive to do even better next time. Our success is driven by the desire of our staff and students to challenge convention, create something new, and play their part in shaping the future.
By hosting this fascinating event we hope to encourage females of all backgrounds to pursue a career in Engineering and Sciences and to offer an insight into the excitement and opportunities available. Further by supporting INWES in its campaign for gender diversity in Engineering and Sciences, we feel that we help building and sustaining the pipeline of female talent in challenging disciplines which transform societies.
The proposed dates for the Conference would be Friday 11th to Monday 14th September 2020. The Conference will be structured around the theme ‘Global Humanitarian Challenges’ covering topics such as pollution, renewable energy, sustainable cities, water and sanitation, natural/man-made disasters, education and training in tackling societal challenges.
Warwick, with excellent transport links to Europe and the world is renowned for its hospitality and welcome. The organising committee will comprise of key members of the Warwick University and Warwick Conferences. This group have had previous organisational success in ICWES 9 in 1991. The organising committee will be supported by students, academic and administrative staff, industrial partners, governmental and non-governmental organisations. Social programmes and entertainment packages will be proposed. Local, national and international sponsorship will be identified. This group has the organisational expertise and enthusiasm to deliver a programme that will accommodate the needs of all attendees alike in a setting conducive to learning, networking and collaboration.
