Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for your papers and registration for iCwes 11, the 11th International Conference of Women Engineers and Scientists.

The iCwes conference has been held every three years consecutively since 1964. This conference provides an excellent opportunity for women engineers and scientists to share their knowledge with the international community, to help facilitate networking, and to improve the social status of women in science and technology.

We proposed "Science and Technology for Global Ecology" as the theme for iCwes 11. We would like to extend our network to protect the Earth on a global scale via the exchange of experiences and ideas. We have three key note lectures, two invited lectures, seven plenary lectures, and more than 150 contributed sessions. Furthermore, a Symposium (which is open to the public), "Junior Scientists Conference" and various social events are planned.

It is a great pleasure and honor for our organizing committee to host this Conference for the second time in Asia and for the first time in a Far-East Asian country. We hope the Conference will meet with the above iCwes goals, and we look forward to seeing you in Chiba in July, 1999.
