The University of Texas at El Paso will host the second annual Southwest Energy Science and Engineering Symposium starting at 8 a.m. Saturday, March 24, at the Double Tree Inn in El Paso.
The symposium will provide formal and informal interactions between students, scholars and industrial professionals in the southwest region.
"We're trying to get involvement from academia, national laboratories and industry, a collaborative effort from across our region – Albuquerque to El Paso," said Norman Love, Ph.D., research assistant professor of mechanical engineering at UTEP.
The event will feature keynote speaker Robert R. Romanosky Jr., Ph.D., technology manager for Power Systems Advanced Research at the National Energy Technology Laboratory under the U.S. Department of Energy. This technology area encompasses research activities in materials, coal, utilization science, bioprocessing, university research and computational energy sciences.
The symposium begins with a breakfast and opening remarks, followed by breakout parallel morning technical sessions. Each talk will be 15-minutes long – 12-minute presentations with three minutes for questions and discussion. The event ends after a luncheon with the keynote speaker.
Registration for the symposium is $10 for students and $15 for other professionals. Cash or check payments are due on the day of the symposium.
