OLUG Subsidy Information

In addition to full coverage of all registration fees for students and post-docs (which covers breakfast and lunch for three days, break snacks, and dinner at The Meliora),* OLUG has made available some funds through the support of the U.S. Department of Energy/NNSA, for travel subsidies of students and post-docs.

    3. Materials, shock, warm-dense matter, x-ray generation
    4. Laboratory astrophysics
