This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Energetic Materials 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 2020 Energetic Materials Seminar will focus on the complex chemical and physical processes which drive explosives, reactive materials, and propellants from the molecular scale to the continuum and beyond. Hierarchical links between spatial and temporal scales will be featured with aims to facilitate connections and collaboration among the diverse body of early career scientists in energetic materials research. Particular attention will be given to highlight the broader scope of careers in energetic materials across academia, the national labs, and industry.
