The first G8 workshop was held on April 8, 2013 at the Center for Materials for Information Technology at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL.
The workshop started with a welcome speech given by Provost/VP for Research Dr. Joe Benson, followed by the program overview and the progress reports from the International Partner Investigators. There were also the progress reports by the MINT faculty members. During the workshop, there were many Q/A and very much fruitful discussions!
There were more than 40 attendees including students and post-doctoral fellows, in addition to the faculty members.
On April 9, there was a Mini-workshop with the two invited speakers.
The second G8 workshop will be held in Germany in May 2014.
