AzSEC - Arizona Student Energy Conference
Sixth Annual Student Conference on Renewable Energy Science, Technology, and Policy at the Energy-Water Nexus
November 7th, 8th, 9th - Biosphere 2
Graduate students and post-docs from Arizona's top universities will come together in the Fall of 2018 with the state's leading renewable energy experts and researchers for the Arizona Student Energy Conference (AzSEC), an annual two-day symposium focusing on developments and exploration in the fields of renewable energy science, technology, and policy at the energy-water nexus.
Poster sessions and awards, policy panel discussions, and PhD presentations will demonstrate the broad scope of research activities being conducted at the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona University, while keynote talks from industry experts and an evening industry mixer will provide opportunities for discussion and networking amongst students and professionals.
2018 promises to be exciting and different with a team competition that focuses on energy-water grand challenges as well as a research "elevator pitch" competition, tour or Biosphere2 and more! Faculty talks will offer insight into the pioneering and collaborative work taking place at Arizona's research institutions.
