Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 10, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by April 8, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description


The upcoming Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on High Temperature Corrosion is giving young scientists in the field a platform to discuss how they see the future of their field in terms of scientific highlights and international trends, new analysis techniques and theoretic approaches. This seminar is off record, no publication is attributed to the presentations or posters. This allows to present and discuss latest results or brand new ideas of your work which can lead to new perspectives and ideas. For two days, your ideas are in the center of interest, up front before the GRC starts.

For the 2017 GRS we would like to encourage for the oral program speakers contributing on the following subjects:

  • From Nucleation to Breakaway - Progress in Lifetime Modelling
  • New Insights to Corrosion Mechanisms
  • Alloys, Compounds and Coatings for Aggressive Environments

If you want to contribute to the oral program please submit an abstract summarizing your topic, emphasizing the impact and originality of your research.

Application Instructions

The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 8, 2017. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
