2014 West Coast Technical Review

March 11
Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley

In order to provide timely information to our sponsor companies on the West Coast and nearby areas, the DSSC will host a one-day review at the Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley campus in Moffett Field, Calif., on March 11. The review will incorporate much of the information presented at our DSSC Fall Technical Review in Pittsburgh, with a few added highlights. By coming to the Bay Area, we hope to make our work more accessible to engineers and researchers within our sponsor companies who may not be able to attend our reviews in Pittsburgh.

Directions to Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley Building 23.
