The conference theme is “Expanding Horizons”. This will be the largest gathering of Vietnamese-American technical, social, educational professionals. Our goals are to provide a cordial working forum for students and young professionals to share, to participate, to expand their knowledge, explore career paths, and interact with invited speakers and other participants. Many come to exchange ideas, to foster friendships, and to develop business partnerships. The daylong events will consist of technical sessions, exhibits, workshops, a poster session, and culminate in a banquet with entertainment celebrating Vietnamese-American music and heritage.
