The Air Force Research Laboratory’s Advanced Science & Technology Symposium has been rescheduled for July 24, 1-5 p.m., at the Top of the Market Banquet Center in Dayton.
This event was originally scheduled to happen May 29, but was postponed after several tornadoes struck the local area on Memorial Day.
AFRL has established a Junior Force Council (JFC) whose charter, in part, is to provide professional development opportunities for those Active Duty and Civilian Air Force personnel who have less than 10 years of experience. This symposium allows participants to engage with some of today’s brightest scientists & engineers who are discovering the technologies that will drive the next wave of business growth. Uncover new opportunities to collaborate & accelerate the development of state-of-the-art technologies.
The symposium is free, and open to academia and industry. Featured technology fields include Sensing, Materials and Manufacturing, Aerospace Systems, Medical, and Health and Human Performance.
The event begins with keynote speaker Dr. Teresa Bennett, Chief Learning Officer of AFRL, followed by speakers from other government agencies and researchers. The event wraps up with a one-hour poster session where AFRL junior force will showcase their work and have meet and greets with other attendees who are interested in being mentors.
Join the JFC and researchers from across academia, industry, & government in an interactive presentation and poster session. Featured technology fields include: – Sensing, Materials & Manufacturing, Aerospace Systems, & Medical, Health, & Human Performance.
