“Innovative Partnering: Interdisciplinary Challenges to Designing the Future” is the theme of the conference sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). The meeting will enable engineers and other technical professionals to learn how to apply the critical skill sets, collaborations and business strategies needed to remain on the cutting edge of competitive engineering practice.

Michael Rogers, futurist-in-residence, at The New York Times Company, and one of the nation’s leading experts on the impact of technology on business and society, will moderate the three 90-minute plenary sessions.

Following each session, a series of workshops led by senior-level engineers will explore the plenary topics in greater depth and from different perspectives. The workshops will serve as a forum for discussion on critical subject areas such as global intellectual property, multidisciplinary thinking and team management, advanced visualizing technologies, and leading virtual teams.

The conferencealso will offer professional development opportunities for engineers to build individual skills in the areas of project management, consensus building and negotiation, changing management techniques, entrepreneurship and more.
