Thursday, July 15 — 5:00-8:00 p.m.

Grand Ballroom, Washington Court Hotel

The annual Fellows' Poster Session affords program review attendees a unique opportunity to learn more about the research being supported by the DOE CSGF program. Each fellow is provided space to present his or her latest findings, and prizes are awarded to those who engage in the best visual and oral presentations.
