The event will be followed by a networking session, which will provide the attendees with a great opportunity to ask their questions in an informal atmosphere and make contact with eminent women in materials science from around the world. The workshop aims to promote interaction across various ethnic, cultural and gender boundaries and facilitate dialog among women (and men) working in, or pursuing education towards a profession in materials science. The main goal is to increase the consciousness of the rewarding careers in materials science and engineering among female scientists and students of all ages.
