The CEM Internal Advisory Council, a grassroots committee of CEM students and postdoctoral researchers, created this workshop to inform the Center’s direction and improve the educational and research experiences of CEM students. POEM will be composed of tutorials by faculty, student talks, poster sessions, and will provide extensive opportunities for interaction between CEM students (on and offsite), and students at NMHU (New Mexico Highlands University), as well as CEM faculty. The workshop also  provides a platform to CEM faculty for exchange of innovative ideas to further the research direction of CEM. This internal workshop is closed to the public
