IWCS seeks Technical Papers for the annual Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum
IWCS calls industry professionals and academic researchers to submit a brief 300–500 word abstract summarizing research or emerging technologies affecting the global cable and connectivity industry. Abstracts will be reviewed by the IWCS 2023 Technical Symposium Committee and authors of accepted abstracts will gain international exposure for their work. Technical Papers will be presented during the Technical Symposium component of the 2023 IWCS Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum and will be published for ongoing research and education.
Examples of paper topics range from manufacturing processes of copper and optical fiber cables, innovative cable design, codes and standards, connectivity and assemblies, installation techniques, materials and extrusion processing, and more. A complete list of suggested topics is available here. Additional topics are also welcome. IWCS accepts submissions from all industry professionals, with no limitation of job title or level of experience. Examples of past authors’ roles include, but are not limited to: Engineering, Research & Development, Product Management, and Academia in a variety of market and industry segments relevant to cable products, materials, processes, and applications.
A referral program is available for those who wish to refer their colleagues to submit a paper. When your colleague submits their abstract, they will be asked to enter your name as the referral source. The person who refers the most authors of accepted Technical Papers will receive complimentary full-access registration to the 2023 Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum.
