The objective of this meeting was to provide a forum for an exchange of ideas and information between university and industry researchers involved in fine particle processing and nanotechnology and related colloid and surface aspects as well as applications. It included representatives of Industry, University, and New York State Economic Development Organizations. The keynote speakers were Glen Merfeld (Platform Leader- Energy Storage Technologies, GE Global Research) and John Rhodes (President and CEO, NYSERDA). Glen Merfeld’s talk was titled “Creating Real Value with Energy Storage.” The title of the keynote address presented by John Rhodes was “Innovation in New York’s Energy Sector.”
This successful meeting was well attended and had many excellent poster presentations on CAMP research. The posters were judged in three categories: most attractive, most creative, and best overall. Certificates and ribbons were awarded to the first, second, and third place winners of each category. The certificates were presented by Clarkson University President Anthony Collins and the ribbons were presented by Distinguished University Professor and CAMP Director S.V. Babu.
