The Chemical Reactions at Surfaces GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
The focus of this meeting is on both computational and experimental methods for addressing novel challenges in surface science and chemical reactions at surfaces. This includes fundamental and applied studies investigating catalysis, 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. In addition, a panel discussion consisting of a number of experienced scientists will provide a perspective on scientific careers with special emphasis on gender and ethnic minority aspects. All participants are strongly encouraged to attend the associated Gordon Research Conference "Chemical Reactions at Surfaces" that takes place immediately following the GRS.
