Syracuse, NY - You’re invited to learn about Sustainable Urban Mobility as part of the 2015 Syracuse Center of Excellence Symposium. The 2015 SyracuseCoE Symposium, scheduled to take place next week over two days, will focus on innovations that optimize clean energy and the way it’s used in buildings, data centers and neighborhood-scale districts. Keynote presentations and technical sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, November 10, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (map).
