Conference Description

Water is a substance of crucial importance to the life on our planet. Understanding and predicting its properties as a pure substance and as a component of more complex systems have therefore been longstanding goals of research in several fields of science and engineering. Although properties of aqueous systems have been studied for many centuries, new and surprising information is brought to light through developments in experimental techniques and theoretical methods. Progress is also being made in developing connections between fundamental physical and chemical properties of aqueous systems and their roles as components of the Earth's ecosystem. Understanding these properties is also crucial in developing new technologies in many areas including heterogeneous catalysis, bioengineering, nanoparticle synthesis, development of new energy sources, and environmental cleanup.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Water and Aqueous Solutions" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
