Sunday, October 9: NAE Chair Gordon R. England will give opening remarks, followed by the president’s address and then the induction of 80 new members and 22 foreign members who were elected in February.

The afternoon program will feature three plenary lectures that illuminate mega-engineering in diverse areas: space, particle physics, and the environment. Gwynne Shotwell, president and COO of SpaceX, will talk about the company’s vision for a Mars mission. Rolf-Dieter Heuer, former general director of CERN, will discuss the remarkable engineering required throughout the Large Hadron Collider mission and responsible for its ultimate great success. And Robert Nicholls, professor of coastal engineering at Southampton University, will speak on engineering adaptation to sea level rise throughout the world, setting the stage for the forum Monday morning.

    It is my privilege to welcome all our members, foreign members, and friends to this year’s annual meeting of the National Academy of Engineering. I extend an especially warm welcome to our newly elected members and foreign members and can assure you that this induction day, just like last evening’s dinner, will be one you will remember. And I would be remiss for not extending a special welcome to all the spouses who so graciously support our service to the academy.
    Speaker: C. D. Mote, Jr. (President, National Academy of Engineering)
