SAWE Conferences

Each year the SAWE hosts an international conference to provide a venue for sharing knowledge and experiences with members and non-members.  Typically, our conferences are in person, but we periodically host the conference virtually via webinar to include those who are unable to travel due to budget or schedule restrictions.

It's never too early to consider writing a paper for presentation at the event. Please make an effort to attend. You will be glad you did!

Sponsors for the conferences are also essential and welcome. We would not be able to provide these fantastic opportunities without you.  Please consider sponsoring us!
