The Gordon Research Seminar on Artificial Molecular Switches and Motors 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.
The design of molecular switches, motors, and machines continues to develop allowing for precise tuning of structure at angstrom to nanometer size scales governed by specific stimuli. In the second iteration of the GRS conference on "Artificial Molecular Switches and Motors", we shift our focus to the novel utilization of these switchable molecular devices in applications such as biological mimics, dynamic materials, information storage, and switchable assemblies. This will be achieved by hosting early career scientists to discuss recent advancements in the connecting of structure to function in these interesting types of molecules and materials.
The seminar 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 seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by March 8, 2019. 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 Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
