On 07.10. ECDF professor Lydia Kaiser will give a lecture on "With diversity to better systems - a systems engineering perspective".
Vision of the Festival:
Global challenges require rethinking and courage for unprecedented multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration. Bringing together the creative talent and energy of the arts with the technical expertise of engineers and scientists can help find ways towards a just future. Therefore, the event will bring together experts in the arts and engineering for a two-day virtual festival with an inspiring program of invited speakers (all women) and panelists. WÆ stands for the collective we that results from the fusion of knowledge acquired by Womxn from art and technology. The overarching mission of WÆ is to create a platform for the open, collaborative and unbiased exchange of ideas to solve technical challenges with innovation and style, and vice versa.
