In the best interests of the health and safety of the entire LES community, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all in-person events until September 30, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation, take appropriate measures as needed, and keep you informed about any future updates. Thank you!

With workshops, panels, peer-to-peer discussions, and networking aimed for attendees at all experience levels, the program is dedicated to protecting and commercializing technologies that were once the future and that are now omnipresent.
