La Fonda on the Plaza, Santa Fe.

A Return to the Southwest

Fellows, alumni, academic advisors, and DOE laboratory and headquarters staff convened at Santa Fe's La Fonda on the Plaza to discuss current topics in high density physics, nuclear science, and materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics. In addition, fellows had the exclusive opportunity to tour Sandia (Albuquerque) and Los Alamos national laboratories in advance of the review.

A benefit of the fellowship, the annual program review provides a unique opportunity to connect people from a variety of disciplines and organizations, all while serving to build and strengthen lifelong relationships.
