Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 8, 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 5, 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 (GRS) on Neutron Scattering is a unique forum which is intended to bring together graduate students, post-docs and early-career faculty with comparable levels of experience from the global neutron science community. Participants are encouraged to showcase and present their cutting edge and unpublished research, to network, collaborate and exchange innovative ideas with their peers and mentors in the understanding and design of novel materials.

This GRS is intended to highlight the triumphs of neutron scattering in providing unique insight in advanced materials research in light of recent advances in the development of neutron instrumentation and the emergence of new neutron sources in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia. The focus of the GRS will be on a variety of materials which represent the full breadth of research conducted in the neutron science community including magnetic and superconducting materials, topological materials, polymeric and biological materials, as well as energy-related and engineering materials. The meeting will feature a keynote lecture by a key scientific leader from the neutron community, selected oral and poster presentations and a mentorship panel focused on career development.

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 5, 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.
