The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship Annual Program Review will return 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 will gather July 16-20 at the Hilton Washington DC National Mall The Wharf, just minutes from the city's iconic landmarks and cultural attractions.

Fellows will arrive and (re)connect late Sunday afternoon, with an all-attendee social to follow. Beginning Monday morning and continuing through Thursday lunch, the general session will include keynote and 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.

Join us for:

  • Comments from Office of Science, NNSA and other invited speakers
  • Insight into fellows' research via fourth-year presentations and the annual poster session
  • Access to DOE laboratory staff and opportunities via a facilities showcase
  • Formal and informal outlets for networking and professional development
  • Convenient access to monuments, museums, dining and more

A benefit of the fellowship, the annual program review provides a unique forum to connect people from a variety of disciplines and organizations, all while serving to build and strengthen relationships in the DOE community that will last a lifetime.

Mark your calendar, review the agenda and register by Wednesday, June 14 to take part in this important dialogue of computational scientists. Note that (Registration is limited to DOE CSGF program participants and invited guests.)
