IWCS is a not-for-profit organization that has hosted the premier technology event for the exchange of information about cable and connectivity products, materials, process innovation, and applications since 1952. The Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum is the leading worldwide event to explore topical issues, learn about new technologies, and network with colleagues from the communications, data, electronics, power, industrial, automotive, and aerospace industries.

Each year, the IWCS Symposium Committee generates an extremely high-caliber program for the Technical Symposium, which is the cornerstone of the Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum. Papers presented during the Technical Symposium remain publicly archived on the IWCS website to be referenced for ongoing research and education.

In addition to the annual Forum, IWCS is committed to the development of industry professionals and scholars by hosting educational webinars, publishing research, and awarding scholarships.
