The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship Annual Program Review returned to the heart of our nation's capital for the first time in more than a decade. Fellows, alumni, faculty, DOE laboratory staff and friends of the program gathered July 16-20 at the Hilton Washington DC National Mall The Wharf, just minutes from the city's iconic landmarks and cultural attractions.

Fellows arrived and (re)connected late Sunday afternoon, followed by an evening all-attendee social. Monday through Thursday programming included keynotes, outgoing fellows' talks, recognition of the 2023 Howes Scholar, a showcase of practicum and employment opportunities at DOE facilities, poster sessions highlighting fellows' research, and a professional development workshop on the subject of mental health and wellness.
