Program

Our program will focus on highlighting new areas of research, sharpening technical knowledge, and advancing professional development through scientific workshops and oral presentations, posters, and our joint workshops with ASTM and Sensom​etrics, as well as our Professional Development session where we not only develop the science, but also the professional engaged in the science.
