The TCC has established 5 Workshop Planning Committees:

  • Energy:  batteries, air quality, water quality, new energy, ...
  • Human Systems: automation, robotics, AI, AR/VR, wearable technologies, EVA/spacesuits, ...
  • Information Technologies: cybersecurity, IoT, data analytics, knowledge management, image processing, RFID, ...
  • Life Sciences: omics, telemedicine, and other topics with potential for cross sector partnerships
