Attending A Conference

The Department of Energy (DOE) has requirements and guidelines for participation in conferences and similar events.  The goal of these requirements is to ensure good stewardship and appropriate use of federal funds.  PPPL is required to report all anticipated conference activity for DOE and non-DOE sponsored conferences. See Attending a Conference for more information.
