There are 4 tour sessions so you need to choose which one (morning or afternoon) suits you best and sign up via the ConfTool agenda. That means clicking here... and then looking for the Monday Marshgate tour you want to sign up to, and following the instructions there either 1000-1100 or 1500-1600. Remember there are 2 Monday pre-conference workshops going on 1030-1230 on Transition Engineering and 1430-1630 Innovation/IP issues and challenges.

Welcome to TE2024! This conference brings together researchers and practitioners in, on and with engineering across academia, government and business to explore how engineering can address the complex and critical challenges facing society today. This annual conference is run by the International Society for Transdisciplinary Engineering, and is hosted by UCL's Department of Science, Technology, Engineering & Public Policy (UCL STEaPP) and UCL Centre for Engineering Education (CEE). The conference will take place at UCL's new East Campus at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London. 

To learn more out TE2024 - the nature of the conference, and what underlies the theme 'Engineering for Social Change' you can visit the 'What is TE?' page and the Conference Theme page. The topics that TE conferences commonly cover can be seen on the Call for Abstracts page.

We look forward to seeing academic engineering researchers, social scientists, engineering policy & business practitioners at TE2024!
