2021 ATE Principal Investigators Conference

October 18-22, 2021


The American Association of Community Colleges with the support of the National Science Foundation will hold the 26th National ATE Principal Investigators’ Conference at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. The conference will bring together more than 850 NSF ATE grantees and their project partners to focus on the critical issues related to advanced technological education. Key people working on ATE projects across the country will participate in the hybrid event. Conference participants represent community colleges, business and industry, secondary school systems, and four-year colleges covering projects in a wide variety of areas, such as information technology, engineering technology, micro- and nanotechnologies, chemical technology, biotechnology, and others.

The conference will kick-off on Monday, October 18 and continue through October 22, 2021. Like last year, this conference will be entirely virtual due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 and travel. If you have already made travel and/or hotel arrangements, have concerns about any refunds, transfers, or anything else that might be affected by shifting to an entirely virtual conference, please see the ATE PI Conference FAQ page.
