The Thailand-WACE Organizing Committee for the 20th World Conference June 5-8, 2017 wishes to announce the third Call for Abstracts and registration. The 20th World Conference will be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand and hosted through the alliance of TACE and our four Global Partners in Thailand: Suranaree University of Technology, Siam University, Sripatum University and Western Digital, Thailand. The host university will be Chiang Mai University. The World Conference theme "New Challenges for CWIE in the 21st Century" was chosen to help stimulate a global conversation about the opportunities and challenges facing CWIE programs. Building upon the success of previous World Conferences and International Research Symposia, the Organizing Committee seeks a robust mixture of papers, workshops, panel discussions and academic posters that address the conference theme and identified special topics. Please review the information in the Call of Abstracts for specific information detailing types of presentations and applicable due dates for abstracts.
