Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 15, 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 May 12, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Soft Condensed Matter Physics is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other early career scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and ideas and network with other early career researchers.

The focus of this meeting is encourage scientific exchange within the highly interdisciplinary soft matter community. The theme of the meeting is "materials by design"; emphasis will be placed on using soft materials to achieve new functions, or to explore new physics, either via activity or structural design (meta-materials). Additionally, the meeting will offer a career-development session on effective scientific communication for soft matter scientists.

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 May 12, 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.
