International Symposium on Frontier of Science, Technology and Engineering (FOSTE)
20 – 23 November 2017
KMUTT Knowledge Exchange for Innovation Center (KX), Bangkok, Thailand
The International Symposium on Frontiers of Science, Technology and Engineering (ISFSTE) brings together through 2-1/2 day meetings a select group of emerging engineering leaders from industry, academe, and government labs to discuss pioneering technical work and leading edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors. The goal of the meetings is to introduce these outstanding engineers (ages 30-45) to each other, and through this interaction facilitate collaboration in engineering, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders.
The Symposium covers four topics that vary from year to year. Examples for future symposia may include: visualization for design and display, nanotechnology, advanced materials, robotics, simulation in manufacturing, energy and the environment, optics, intelligent transportation systems, MEMS, design research, bioengineering, counter-terrorism technologies, and quantum computing. In 2016 the topics will cover Sustainable Mobility, Automation and Robotics, Green Energy, and Smart Agriculture. Following each talk, there is substantial time devoted to discussion. In addition, breakout sessions, poster sessions, and other events offer ample opportunity for informal exchange among the participants. An alumni program supports continuing contact among the participants. Attendees find the programs useful and unique in their ability to bring together a diverse group for the purpose of exchanging information about engineering developments and challenges across disciplines.
