國際女科技人聯絡網簡稱為INWES,是一個全球性、包含約60個國家參與的數理科技女性團體的非營利組織,主要以機構會員為主,如NGO組織、大學、研究單位、公司企業團體等,但是也有個人會員,因為有些國家尚未組成婦女科技團體,希望藉由個人的參與而促成相關團體的組成。

In late October, two graduate students of TWiST and Professor Chia-Li Wu were invited to attend the Young Women Scientists Camp in Daejeon, Korea, sponsored by KWSE.  Students were very excited about the events.  They brought a great variety of decorations to embellish the country booth, and also rented a set of Taiwan aboriginal ornaments for performance in the evening program.  Most of all, they made many friends, enjoyed the sisterhood, and felt much encouraged and empowered from the two-day camp.  Chia-Li gave a talk entitled “Be a STEM Woman in the Coming Society” to echo the Camp Theme- Future Society, Science, and Women.
