Foresight Institute's 2014 Workshop on Directed/Programmable Matter for Energy

Sept. 5-7, 2014, in Palo Alto, California

About the Event:

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.

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

This was a private, invitation-only event.

Workshop White Paper

Directed Programmable Matter for Energy Applications: Insights, analysis and implications for society
