The Legacy of Prof. Janos M. Beer, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Chair: Dr. Ashwani Gupta, University of Maryland — Prof. Beer died in December and we wanted to honor his memory by having former students reference their work and how it relates to what they are doing today. Prof. Beer was instrumental in making this conference what it is today.  Our previous Conference Committee Chair, Prof.-Dr.Ing. Klaus R.G. Hein, was in attendance to honor his friend and colleague, Prof. Beer.

They reach out to all segments of the energy industry so that the state-of-the-art (and beyond) is presented.
