Technical Symposium


The cornerstone of our Conference, the IWCS Technical Symposium is recognized as the premier technical symposium for the cable and connectivity industry. At the UL & IWCS China conference we will present new and innovative papers on research and development for wire & cable materials, connector/interconnect technologies, designs, components, fabrication, performance, testing and applications.

Professional Development


In addition to core courses in fiber, copper and materials, we are introducing new courses on the issues and technologies of high concern and interest. New this year is the course “UL Introduction and the Codes & Standards Making Process”.

The three core courses will provide basic technology information, helpful to those new to the industry. The elective courses will deliver current, leading edge topics on areas of interest to engineers, scientists and other wire and cable professionals.
