The KIMCOE/ ARL Knowledge Fusion Research Workshop (KFRW) has been very successful in introducing students and researchers, coming from diverse fields, to Army requirements. The Workshop has attracted internationally recognized fusion researchers, resulting in the building of a strong defense-oriented fusion community that includes HBCU scientists.
Workshops have been held annually since 2003, with the exception of 2008. Listed below are some of the key workshop participants and the titles of some of their presentations. In addition, annual Workshop themes and special panel discussions are shown to indicate the range of topics addressed since KIMCOE was established.
