Organized by Asia’s top engineering schools, this third edition of the workshop aims to bring together young female professionals in engineering disciplines from around the world, including scholars, researchers and engineers interested in exploring and advancing careers in academia, for scientific and career-oriented discussions relevant to the development of women academic leaders in Asia. 

The ADF 2020 - The Rising Stars Women in Engineering Workshop
We hope that our Rising Stars have had a great time, profited a lot, and made many new friends. We wish you all the best and a lot of success for your future career. We also thank our co-organizers for the strong support in organizing this workshop!

If you are interested in becoming a Rising Star yourself: the ADF 2020 - The Rising Stars Women in Engineering Workshop will be held in UNSW Sydney and applications will open later this year.



In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Asian Deans Forum has made the decision to postpone the 2020 event. The safety of all participants and presenters is of the highest importance. At this point we do not have rescheduled date, but it is not likely to happen before early 2021. The event will go ahead though, at some point. Please watch this space for updates. Stay safe and well and we will see you in Sydney for the Rising Stars Asia: Women in Engineering workshop in the near future.
