The International Conference for Women Engineers and Scientists (ICWES) has been held every three years since 1964 and provides an important forum for the exchange of information and ideas for women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This year, ICWES will be held in Adelaide, Australia, on 19-22 July under the theme Leadership, Innovation, Sustainability.
The conference will provide an opportunity to discuss innovative technology in the 21st century across the engineering, science and technological professions as well as providing excellent network opportunities with colleagues in business, academia and government.
