Workshop on Self-Assembled Bio-Inspired Materials for Energy
February 4 & 5, 2011
We would like to invite you to participate at the “Workshop on Self-Assembled Bio-Inspired Materials for Energy” to be held at Argonne National Laboratory on February 4 and 5, 2011. The purpose of this workshop is to identify challenges and develop a strategy for advancing biomaterials for broad energy applications and to establish communication and collaborations between researchers at Argonne National Laboratory and neighboring Universities working on biomaterials.
The workshop will consist of two keynote lectures, to be given by Prof. George Whitesides (Harvard) and Prof. Raymond Goldstein (U. Cambridge, UK), followed by a number of invited talks. We will also include discussion sessions concerning the potential for wider collaboration on bio-inspired materials in the mid-west.
The final program for the workshop is available on the website http://www.anl.gov/biomaterials.
If you are able to participate at the workshop, please contact the workshop secretary, Nancy Sanchez (email@example.com or 630-252-6525), as soon as possible. If you are not a U.S. citizen, please contact Nancy by Monday at the latest, so she can complete your paperwork for gate pass access to Argonne. Please also confirm your attendance, if you have not already done so, so that we can have a total number for lunch and dinner.
Additionally, we are still welcoming posters for the workshop. If you have not already submitted an abstract, please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to your active participation in the discussion sessions and thank you in advance for your valuable time and contributions. If you have any questions, please contact us.
