For the last few years, the APS Topical Group on Energy Research and Applications (GERA) has sponsored a pre-meeting workshop, intended primarily for graduate students, that has proven very popular.

The 2018 workshop theme will be "The Future of Sustainable Approaches to Energy" and will be co-sponsored with the APS Forum for Early Career Scientists (FECS). The workshop will consist of a series of talks by leading experts in the field, lunch with the experts, and a panel discussion. There will be a reception following the conclusion of the workshop.
