Symposium Focuses on Energy Challenges

If you're in Chicago or near the Northwestern University campus, this might be something interesting to attend.

Steve Chu, who won the 1997 Nobel Prize in physics and is director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy, will deliver the keynote address at the Northwestern-Argonne Energy Symposium on Friday at Northwestern University.

The symposium, themed "Energy: The Challenge for the 21st Century," is free and open to the public. The program is from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Ryan Family Auditorium in the Technological Institute, 2145 Sheridan Rd., Evanston.

With the cost of gasoline here in the US rapidly approaching an average of $4 per gallon, this has become certainly a very hot topic.
