The Gordon Research Seminar on Atomic Physics 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 year's seminar will explore the wide range of research directions that AMO physics is taking, including newly developed tools and platforms, current progress in well established subfields, and connections to other fields. The forms that AMO physics takes nowadays range from new theoretical frameworks to the development of novel technology, while it creates bridges to other areas of physics including particle physics, cosmology, condensed matter, quantum information, gravitational physics and exotic new physics beyond standard model. The seminar will present a perfect opportunity for younger scientists to present their work, and participate in lively discussions inside and outside of the auditorium. All attendees will have the opportunity to contribute to the GRS. All applicants should submit a poster abstract and will, at minimum, present a poster. We will select our speakers from the submitted poster abstracts prior to the meeting. Additionally, a select number of our speakers will also have the chance to present their work to the larger community at the following GRC.
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 12, 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.
