Industry Forum

IESES 2023 will host an Industry Forum during the conference, addressing the theme of “The Twin Green & Digital Transition”. Industry Forum is an IES program driven by the Industry Activities Committee and cosponsored by the Technical Committee on Standards for Industry to engage with research in a productive manner. Industry speakers are invited to discuss industry, technology directions, and, most importantly, challenges for the companies. These presentations inform the attendees on the vision and application of technologies in business and what challenges companies are encountering. The forum also offers the opportunity for researchers to study the particular challenge and know the contact in the companies should they have a solution that the company might utilize. We want all conference attendees to engage in the Industry Forum and listen to the presentations of our industry speakers so all communities can benefit.
