The recent meeting brought together leaders in high-energy physics from the U.S. and China to hear progress reports from collaborative activities and plan a program of future cooperative research. James Siegrist (DOE) led the U.S. delegation and Xu Ruiming of the Bureau of Frontier Sciences and CSA led the Chinese delegation. More>
The event takes place March 2016 in Walnut Creek. Past, current and prospective Community Science Program users are welcome to attend, as are researchers and students interested in cutting-edge energy and environmental genomics research. Submit a poster abstract early; several short talks will be selected from abstracts. More>
Participants discussed how to promote transformative energy storage technologies. The aim was to bring scientists together scientists with policymakers and businesses to discuss what more could be done —whether in labs, universities, industry, or government — to accelerate vehicle electrification and grid storage.
