2020 Virtual Meeting: Join Us on Zoom, July 13-15
Given the uncertain future of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 DOE CSGF Program Review has moved to a three-day virtual format. Fourth-year fellows will give their outgoing presentations via Zoom and invitations will be sent the week of June 8. Fellows, alumni, academic advisors, university coordinators, practicum coordinators, DOE laboratory staff and other fellowship friends are asked to preregister for access and to receive meeting updates; meanwhile, questions should be directed to the Krell team.
The meeting is tentatively planned to run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Central) daily, with presentations at the top and half of each hour — each followed by a moderated, live Q&A period. Attendees can expect a break of approximately ten minutes between each talk, with a daily agenda (talk schedule) to be added to this website in early July.
