Rapid Fire Symposium
Energy: Creation, Conservation, Conversion

Networking Reception: 5:00 - 5:30 p.m.
Barus and Holley, Room 168
Do you study energy or environmental issues? Are you curious about what your colleagues are doing? Wish you could learn about it all in one place? The Environmental Change Initiative is organizing two rapid-fire symposia in the spring semester to capture the broad range of campus research and activities in these areas. The energy symposium, scheduled for January 31 to coincide with "Focus the Nation," is cosponsored by the Vice President for Research, the Division of Engineering, and the Dean of the College.
We aim to include the full variety of campus and community activities but keep the program short enough to get a taste of everything that’s happening. A reception will encourage follow up conversations and the program and presentations will be posted to a web site where additional information can also be posted.
The symposium will consist of a series of 5-minute talks by members of the Brown, RISD and Providence communities to highlight the many energy-related projects that are underway. Research talks will be grouped early in the afternoon (3:30 pm - 5 pm). Community and other action-oriented projects will present later in the afternoon (5:30 -6:30), with a networking reception in between.
