The Gordon Research Seminar on Chemical Reactions at Surfaces 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 focus of this meeting is on both computational and experimental methods being used to address novel issues in science and technology where surface science and chemical reactions at the surface are the unifying factor. This includes fundamental and applied studies investigating catalysis, electronic materials, environmental science, electrochemistry, solar energy conversion, biomaterials, and nanoscience.
Several sessions addressing a diverse range of surface science applications will be devoted to oral and poster presentations by attendees. Afterwards a panel consisting of several scientists will provide a perspective on the different career paths that are available and the steps needed to attain them. All participants are strongly encouraged to attend the associated Gordon Research Conference "Chemical Reactions at Surfaces" that takes place immediately following the GRS.
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 November 16, 2018. 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.
