Directed/Programmable Matter for Energy (DPM) Workshop

October 17, 2014

A small, highly interactive 2-1/2 day meeting focused on long-term prospects for revolutionary advances in energy storage, transmission, and generation based on improved precision in our control of matter was held September 5-7, 2014 in Palo Alto, California.

Wide-ranging thinkers, firmly grounded in a deep and broad understanding of current science, facilitated future research directions, encouraged the formation of new multidisciplinary teams, and sped nanoscale advances in the energy field.
