Women-in-Photonics/Electronics Symposium @ CSW-2021
May 10 @ 13:00 - 20:00
Due to the COVID-19 situation the Compound Semiconductor Week (CSW-2021) will be an online conference (it was postponed from last year).
As a part of the CSW-2021 Prof. Qin Wang (RISE/KTH/IEEE) is organizing a Women-in-Electronics/Photonics Symposium with a number of invited international speakers. The event is sponsored by the IEEE Photonics Society Sweden Chapter through an IEEE Photonics Society Chapter Grant.
To promote personal and professional growth for women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), a Women-in-Electronics/Photonics (WIE/WIP) symposium with two sessions will be arranged in the afternoon and evening on Monday, 10-May-2021 (13:00-15:00 CET and 18:00 to 20:00 CET). Eight female invited speakers will present their scientific results with themes on Electronics/Photonics. This symposium aims to inspire young professionals and PhD students to embrace the new technology leap in the STEM fields.
The symposium is part of the UNESCO International Day of Light (IDL) 2021 Event Programme.
