Auckland waterfront19th International Conference of Women Engineers and Scientists

Women in STEM invited to Aotearoa New Zealand

In early September 2023,  Aotearoa New Zealand will welcome women from across the globe to discuss how science, engineering and technology can help create a better, more equitable world.

The 19th International Conference of Women Engineers and Scientists (ICWES19) will take place in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, from 4-6 September 2023. The conference theme – Shaping the Future – will offer examples of and insights for women studying and working in STEM (science, engineering, technology and mathematics), and their advocates, and showcase the potential of science and engineering to change the world for the better. 

Submit your abstract

Women from around the world are invited to submit their work – from fundamental research projects to examples of how science and engineering are being applied in the real world - to be considered for the programme. Abstract submission is open until 9 December 2022, with the full programme confirmed in early 2023.

Organisations are encouraged to support their teams’ personal and professional development by challenging their female staff to submit an abstract on a recent project or piece of research, and by providing opportunities for them to attend the conference in person.

The conference program will focus on nine areas of STEM:

•    Protecting and restoring the natural environment
•    Enhancing liveability through urban transformation
•    Improving transportation by revolutionising mobility
•    Transitioning to clean energy
•    Improving health and healthcare
•    Providing food security
•    Advancing technology
•    Protecting people from natural hazards and other threats
•    Ensuring STEM diversity and equality.
