2018 March Meeting
GERA Workshop on Energy Research and Applications, Sunday March 4th
GERA has sponsored an annual workshop held the Sunday before the beginning of the March Meeting for the last few years. This event, intended primarily for graduate students, has proven to be very popular. Each year the workshop is organized around a theme. The 2018 workshop to be held in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, March 4th will focus on and overview topics in Energy Research and Applications, Energy Storage, Solar Energy, and Magnetics for use in Energy Applications. The workshop consists of a series of talks by leading experts in the field, lunch with the experts, and a panel discussion. The organizing committee includes Craig Taylor, Michelle Johannes, Ernesto Marinero, Talat Rahman, and Albert Migliori.
Graduate students and postdocs selected to attend the workshop will be given a stipend to offset expenses. A limited number of spots are available for this workshop so look for application/registration information coming soon!
GERA-sponsored Focus Sessions
In addition to the workshop, GERA is organizing an invited symposium “Materials and Fuels for the New Energy Economy” and sponsoring or co-sponsoring three focus topics at the March meeting. The focus topics are (along with their sorting category numbers):
21.1.1: Thermoelectric Phenomena, Materials, Devices, and Applications (GERA/DMP)
21.1.2: Solar Energy Conversion/Photovoltaics (GERA)
21.1.3: Energy Storage (GERA)
Information about focus topics and GERA's additional (non-focused) sorting categories can be found under topic area 21 on the webpage.
