The Gordon Research Seminar on Electron Donor-Acceptor Interactions is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other early-career scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting-edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting is to bring together our understanding of electron donor-acceptor interactions in the context of fundamental studies and applications. Topics covered by an interdisciplinary selection of speakers will include, but are not limited to: solar energy conversion and storage, spectroscopy of molecules and materials, charge and energy transfer in biological systems, donor-acceptor interactions in nanomaterials, molecular design of functional chromophores, as well as theory and computation of electron transfer processes. An interdisciplinary panel will focus on science communication.
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, 2022. 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.
