28 November – 4 December 2015, Kyoto, Japan

 

Engineering: Innovation and Society

The World Engineering Conference and Convention (WECC2015), the 5th WEC, will be held in Kyoto, Japan, in 2015. This event will showcase Japan as a nation built on scientific and technological innovation to achieve sustainable development in the 21st century. WECC2015 will also provide a forum for sharing information focused on innovations required to make sustainable development a reality and advances in fundamental technologies to achieve this vision. Adopting both local and global perspectives, WECC2015 aims to make a productive contribution to worldwide peace and socioeconomic progress.

From the perspective of “Engineering for Society and Engineering in Society”, WECC2015 intends to strike a balance between the innovation that engineering aims to achieve and presentations by engineers and researchers who will provide the basis for such innovation.

Reflecting this approach, the overall conference theme will be “Engineering: Innovation and Society”.
