APS March Meeting 2015
Energy Research Opportunities Workshop
Sunday, March 1, 2015
8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Convention Center, Room 204A
Who Should Attend? Graduate students and postdocs
This is a one-day workshop for graduate students and postdocs that highlights the contributions physics-related research can make towards meeting the nation's energy needs in environmentally friendly ways. The workshop is aimed at young physicists who are concerned about the environment and who would like to find ways to use their scientific and quantitative skills to help meet the challenges that the world faces.
The workshop features plenary talks by leaders in the field of energy research. After an overview talk, there are talks on different cutting-edge research areas. Each talk is aimed at the level of physics graduate students who are not experts in energy research. The goal of the workshop is to provide information to physics graduate students and postdocs on how they can contribute to energy and environmental solutions while doing exciting scientific research.
There will also be an informal reception following the workshop for meeting participants sponsored by the Journal on Renewable and Sustainable Energy.
A limited amount of travel expense assistance is available.
