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.
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 February 29, 2020. 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.
