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 third edition of the Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on “Artificial Molecular Motors and Switches” brings together grad students, post-docs, and early-career scientists to discuss recent advances in the field of molecular devices. The aim of this GRS is to provide a unique platform for the open exchange of new data and ideas with ample time for discussion, promoting interaction and collaboration between all participants.
The future opportunities for the development of new varieties of molecular devices and their applications in smart materials, biological environments, sensors, precision medicine, and many more aspects of chemical science will be emphasized. The Seminar will explore how different functions arise from the structural design and how to fully harness their dynamic properties in novel applications.
Scientists from multiple disciplines will get the opportunity to share their expertise to broaden theoretical and practical knowledge about this fascinating field of research as well as discuss applications of molecular machines and the challenges that lie ahead.
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 5, 2021. 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.
