UTEP Symposium on Energy Science and Engineering Puts out Call for Papers

The second annual Southwest Energy Science and Engineering Symposium at The University of Texas at El Paso has issued a call for papers.

The interdisciplinary conference is accepting papers through March 1 on all topics related to energy science and engineering. Those interested in submitting their scientific findings can visit engineering.utep.edu/seses for more information.

“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 symposium – to be held at 8 a.m. March 24 at the DoubleTree hotel in El Paso – is intended to provide formal and informal interactions between students, scholars and industrial professionals in the southwest region.

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, and computational energy sciences.

The symposium also will have breakout parallel morning technical sessions. 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.
