Don't Forget To Submit Your HI-TEC Conference Proposal!

On July 19-22 our National Center for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT Center) will be participating in the first HI-TEC (High Impact Technology Exchange Conference).

HI-TEC is a
national conference in partnership with a consortium of National Science Foundation (NSF)Advanced Technological Education centers and projects.

HI-TEC is the first national conference on advanced technological education where both faculty who teach technicians and technicians themselves can go to update skills and knowledge. The conference is the
result of the collaborative efforts of ATE centers and projects across the nation and represents the evolution of the long-standing and highly-successful SAME-TEC Conference. Many of you joined us at SAME-TEC last year in Austin and we hope that you will join us again this year at HI-TEC in Scottsdale!

Charged with Educating America's Technical Workforce, HI-TEC will consist of one and a half days of pre-conference workshops and two days of conference sessions and keynote speakers. Attendees will have the opportunity to choose from a larger number of workshops and sessions.

HI-TEC workshops and sessions will cover the following areas:

  • Advanced Manufacturing Technologies,
  • Agricultural, Environmental and Energy Technologies,
  • Biotechnology, Chemical and Process Technologies,
  • Engineering Technologies,
  • Information & Security Technologies,
  • Learning and Evaluation, and
  • Micro- and Nanotechnologies
In addition, HI-TEC will uniquely explore the convergence of these areas!

Our conferences have always offered opportunities to participate in and learn about leading efforts to advance ICT technical training in the US - this summer it will be even better.

The HI-TEC Program Committee is currently accepting proposals for workshops, sessions and keynote speakers. Proposals must be submitted by January 30, 2009. To review proposal guidelines and to submit your proposal online, please visit
