Wearable Technologies Workshop
April 29 & 30, 2019

hosted by the NASA Johnson Space Center

Are you developing wearable technologies or solutions?

Are you looking for wearable solutions or collaboration partners?

The Technology Collaboration Center will hold a two day workshop on Wearable Technologies on April 29 & 30, 2019, hosted by NASA Johnson Space Center.

Day 1 - Challenge Day

The first day of the workshop will be for the Challenge Program, where organizations can submit their unmet Wearable Technologies challenges to the TCC.  The TCC will solicit proposals from universities (student teams), startup companies, and anyone else on developing a proof-of-concept prototype addressing one of the challenges.

The schedule for the Challenge Program is:

  • January 1 - TCC begins accepting Challenge Team Proposals from universities (student teams), startup companies or anyone else interested in responding to the challenge
  • January 24 - Final Deadline for late Challenge Request submissions.  Since Challenge Teams will be assigned throughout January, late Challenge Requests may have less availability to universities and startups planning to participate.
  • January 31 - Deadline for submitting Challenge Team Proposals to the TCC; Challenge Team Assignments will be assigned first-come, first-served, while team slots are available
  • February 4 - TCC announces the Challenge Team assignments
  • April 12 - Deadline for Challenge Teams to register their attendees for Challenge Day
  • April 29 - Challenge Day, the first day of the TCC's 2-day Wearable Technologies workshop

Day 2 - Presentation Day

The second day of the event will be a typical TCC workshop, with presentations on the latest wearable technology developments or unmet challenges related to wearables.

If your organization has a strong interest in wearable technologies (either as a producer or a user), please contact the TCC if you're interested in serving on the Planning Committee for this workshop, or in making a presentation (send an e-mail to events@tcc-houston.org or call at 281-969-7801).

More details on this event will be provided later.

Please contact the TCC for sponsorship opportunities.
