FYI for members of your organizations who may be interested in presenting their research:
Dear students and researchers,
The application process for presenting at the Friday Energy Showcase of the MIT Energy Conference is still open and the deadline for submitting an abstract has been postponed to February 3rd.
Please quickly forward this message to the students in your group who would be interested in presenting their research.
The MIT Energy Conference, held on March 5th & 6th, is an event which strives to discuss and develop solutions to our most pressing energy challenges by bringing together leaders in energy technology, policy, industry, and finance.
In order to ensure we present a diverse selection of research and technologies we ask you to submit a one-paragraph description of your poster and/or display to moc.liamg|esacwohs.ecnerefnocygrene.tim#moc.liamg|esacwohs.ecnerefnocygrene.tim. We will then select the final set of presenters based on the content we receive. Unlike traditional poster sessions, presenters are highly encouraged to utilize physical samples and interactive displays to showcase their research.
The deadline for submissions is now February 3rd and selected presenters will be notified by February 8th. We encourage early submissions due to the limited space.
The Friday Energy Showcase will exhibit the latest and most innovative energy research and business endeavors from MIT, the New England area, and beyond. The event is free, open to the public, and will feature live music, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres.
Last year, the Friday Energy Showcase was a great success. Over 1,300 attendees were given the opportunity to interact with more than 30 innovative energy companies and 60 cutting-edge academic energy research groups. This year we are moving to a larger venue at the Boston Sheraton Hotel and are planning to welcome even more presenters and attendees than last year. We believe that your participation in the Friday Energy Showcase would be a fantastic opportunity for you to share your work with other researchers in the energy sector, members of the MIT and broader energy communities, as well as the public at large.
