Globally, the use of traditional sources of energy have come under increased pressure for reform due to tighter competition for traditional resources and increasing evidence of climate change. Towards the goal of lowering our carbon footprint and indigenizing our resource base there exists a significant gap in our ability to store large amounts of energy in a safe and viable fashion. This symposium constitutes a continuing conversation with key leaders in government, industry and academia on what solutions exist and timelines for their adoption.

This two-day symposium will focus on the science, technology, policy and entrepreneurial challenges in enabling new novel energy storage solutions for the future green energy initiatives.

Government leaders, entrepreneurs and front-line researchers will share their experiences and present solutions for enabling these technologies to become commericially viable.

This meeting is jointly sponsored by Sandia National Laboratories and College of Science and Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Northeastern University. This event is managed by the Knowledge Foundation.
Northeastern University Center for Renewable Energy Technology (NUCRET), established in 2009, aims to further research and education at Northeastern University; dedicated to the mission of advancing our knowledge and practice of technologies as applied to efficient renewable energy conversion and storage. This meeting is in line with these objectives to enable students, researchers ann lay people to interact with frontline people in the field of energy storage. This two day symposium will be highlighted throughout the campus and local community.

Industry, government and academic scientists are encouraged to submit poster titles for this event. One-page abstracts (8 1/2" x 11" with 1-inch margins) must be submitted via e-mail: no later than October 15, 2013 for inclusion in conference documentation. Additional poster submissions will be accepted until August 1, 2013 but may not be included in conference documentation.

DIMENSIONS of the poster boards are: 
4 feet wide by 3 feet high 
(although posterboards could be placed vertically as well and then the dimentsions obviously would be 3' w x 4' h, or 90 x 120cm accordingly). 

Note: If you're submitting a poster, you MUST be registered and paid registration fee plus posterboard reservation fee in advance to ensure that a posterboard is reserved for you. 
Registration fee includes access to the conference, refreshments, access to posters, exhibit hall, and all documentation made available to us by speakers.
