Join us on Saturday July 22nd for a one day workshop on some of the critical issues currently facing researchers in the fields of electronics and photonics. Agenda: • Keynote presentations by scientific leaders from around the globe – speakers will discuss the scientific issues at the core of their research and reflect on their careers in science, as well as the pathways which led them to their current positions. • Student research poster competition – an opportunity to describe the results of your research to your peers and to leaders in your field. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best posters. • Lunch with the leaders – make a one-on-one connection with our experts and ask your questions on research and life as a scientist. • Evening reception – a chance to wrap up and reflect on the day with your peers. Participation in this event is free but advance registration (no later than June 15th) is required. You can register by submitting an email to Jonathan Bird (, at which time you should also indicate the title of any poster that you will present (note that presentation of a poster is not a prerequisite for attendance at the workshop).
