Powder-RENEW Users' Workshop 2018

We are pleased to host the 2018 POWDER-RENEW platform users' workshop, co-located with IEEE ICC 2018 in Kansas City, MO. The goal of the workshop is to expose potential users, from academia, industry, and government, to current platform plans and to obtain their input while these plans are still formative.

To ensure a true interactive workshop setting, attendance will be limited and by invitation.

Please note that registration for ICC is not required to attend the workshop.
