This conference has been deferred to 2023 due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back soon for the 2023 schedule.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Chemistry and Physics of Liquids 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 meeting will explore the unique properties of liquids at molecular and bulk scales. Strong focus will be given to new understandings and impacts of structure and dynamics in simple and complex liquids. An interdisciplinary selection of speakers will discuss a variety of topics, including but not limited to extended liquid interfaces, solvation, biomolecular systems, and self-assembly. Contributions from and connections between theory, simulation, and experiments are strongly desired. Four participants will be selected from the poster and oral sessions to give short talks during the ensuing 2021 Liquids GRC. Two keynote talks, one from simulation and one from experiment, will be given by renowned and emerging leaders to provide insight on exciting fundamental questions in the evolving field. An additional mentorship component will include a panel of professional scientists that will lead a discussion on careers across academia, national laboratories, and industry.
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 April 30, 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.
