The Electronics Division of The American Ceramic Society announces a World Outreach Workshop (WOW) on materials technology and 5G communications to be held virtually on July 7, 2021 Registration is now closed for this event.

This first WOW will be a part of the series of workshops on different topics targeting different regions of the world. While the meeting is open to everyone, the workshop timeline will be designed for the targeted region. The first WOW meeting is on 5G Materials and Beyond and the targeted time zone is Americas (UTC-3 to UTC -7).

The goal of WOW is to provide a new opportunity for young researchers to learn from some of the best minds working in materials technology and telecommunications today.

Keynote Speaker

Jessica Rosenworcel, Acting Chairwoman of U.S. Federal Communications Commission

Federal Communications Commission Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel believes that the future belongs to the connected. She works to promote greater opportunity, accessibility, and affordability in our communications services in order to ensure that all Americans get a fair shot at 21st century success. She believes strong communications markets can foster economic growth and security, enhance digital age opportunity, and enrich our civic life.

From fighting to protect net neutrality to ensuring access to the internet for students caught in the Homework Gap, Jessica has been a consistent champion for connecting all. She is a leader in spectrum policy, developing new ways to support wireless services from Wi-Fi to video and the internet of things. She also is responsible for developing policies to help expand the reach of broadband to schools, libraries, hospitals, and households across the country.
