Summary Sentence: Join IEN, IMAT and SEI for a workshop to collaborate on the DOE Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) call.

Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Please join in a workshop on September 12, 12-5pm in the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute Auditorium to discuss the call for DOE Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC); anticipated for the fall. The workshop is co-sponsored by the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN), Institute for Materials (IMAT) and Strategic Energy Institute (SEI).  These grants are up to $5M/year for 5 year centers. Georgia Tech currently has one EFRC led by Krista Walton in ChBE. One of the anticipated call areas is in the area of microelectronics. The purpose of this workshop is to pull together faculty working in related areas to identify areas of strength for GT and potential proposal focus areas.  Tom Conte was on the BES study committee and will also be providing an overview of the topic.

The agenda (below) includes a presentation by Tom Conte, who was one of the leads for the DOE workshop that led to the RFI, Krista Walton on her experiences leading an EFRC, and a opportunity for faculty to give a short (5 min) presentations on their capabilities or concepts, a presentation of the likely dimensions/parameters of the EFRC call, and IRI support.
