The School of Engineering at the University of Mississippi is delighted to announce the call for participation in the 2013 Mid-South Annual Science and Engineering Conference (MAESC 2013). The Mid-South Annual Engineering and Science Conference serves as a forum to bring together scientists, engineers and professional from southern states to present and discuss the latest research and development in science, technology, and engineering. The past 15 meetings drew significant participation from mid-south research institutions and industries in forms of research presentations and display booths.
This year’s MAESC aims to bridge the gap between recent advances in research and fast growing industrial needs and challenges. MAESC2013 is dedicated to accelerate the nuance research and technology transfer to improve the mid-south competitiveness in the area of science, technology, and engineering. This forum will help in providing a wealth of practical information for innovators researchers and practitioners to develop new products, processes, and technologies.
