The 2022 ATE Conference: Reconnecting & Advancing the Skilled Technical Workforce will be held as an in-person event with a virtual track participation option. ATE grantees may elect to fulfill their NSF grant requirement through participation in the in-person event and/or the virtual components of this conference.

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 virtually with ATE Connects on Thursday, October 20 and Friday, October 21 from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. EDT and be followed by an in-person event taking place at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. on October 26-28, 2022.  A post-conference virtual track featuring a few key sessions will be held on Friday, November 4 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. EDT.

As we are still coming out of the pandemic, AACC realizes and respects that travel restrictions, personal preference, and other factors may apply when considering whether to attend this year’s in-person conference, and as such a limited virtual component will be available. The conference’s virtual component will include access to ATE Connects, recorded plenary sessions from the in-person event, and a few key sessions to occur live as part of a virtual track following the conference on November 4.
