Meeting Description


The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. This GRS is the first one in the series of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage.

The 2017 GRS-CCUS will focus on areas including the next-generation carbon capture technologies, state-of-the-art carbon utilization and conversion research, progressive carbon storage advances, up-to-date process optimization, social science research on the public perception of CCUS, and relevant market/policy considerations. This seminar is not only aimed at bringing young scientists involved in climate research together with cutting edge technologies, but will also offer career guidance for young professionals with profound mentorship sessions. The collegial atmosphere with open discussions, interactive poster presentations and outdoor activities is expected to promote extensive collaborations within the CCUS community.

This GRS-CCUS will be held in conjunction with a Gordon Research Conference on the same topic (GRC-CCUS). Ideas and outcomes of individual contributions and of the discussions in GRS-CCUS are envisioned to be passed onto GRC-CCUS to foster multi-directional communications between students, faculty and industrial researchers.

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 March 10, 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.
