The deadline for registration is fast approaching:

GCEP Research Symposium 2008
Energy Research—Five Years and Beyond
October 1-3, 2008
Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center
Stanford University

The Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP) will hold its fourth annual energy research symposium. As GCEP recently reached its five-year milestone, the theme of the conference will be “Energy Research—Five Years and Beyond.” Researchers from Stanford and around the world will discuss the project’s progress as well as the opportunities that could lead to energy technologies with significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

The three-day event is free and open to the Stanford community and other researchers and energy professionals, but registration is required by Tuesday, September 23, 2008, as space is limited. To register, please visit the symposium website at

The first day of the conference will include general sessions in which representatives from a number of university-based energy research programs will give their outlook on energy research in the next five years. Technical leaders from GCEP will also give an overview of the research progress made and the opportunities that lie ahead in a broad set of energy areas over the next five years.

Technical sessions on the second and third days will include presentations by GCEP investigators highlighting the results of their research and poster sessions in which all GCEP investigators and their graduate students will provide details of their work.

The symposium will cover the following topics:

Wednesday, Oct. 1: General Sessions
* Morning: Perspectives on Energy Research in the Next Five Years
* Afternoon: Progress in Energy Research and Opportunities in the Next Five Year

Thursday, Oct. 2: Technical/Poster Sessions
