Exciting Enhancements for 2017

The newly renovated Crystal Gateway Marriott is the backdrop for this summer's DOE CSGF Annual Program Review. Just as the meeting site has seen upgrades, the review agenda also has been refreshed in response to program sponsor and attendee feedback.

All-attendee programming begins with a Monday afternoon DOE Laboratory Poster Session, highlighting practicum, postdoctoral and employment opportunities and setting the stage for more focused conversations throughout the week. Tuesday’s schedule remains unchanged, but Wednesday features an all-day, hands-on HPC Workshop highlighting the latest DOE supercomputer platforms and allowing for team formation, collaboration and networking. The event touches on the work of program alumni each day, and concludes Thursday with a special postdoc-to-career panel illustrating the DOE CSGF’s breadth and impressive, growing graduate base.
