The 2020 Gordon Research Seminar aims to bring together students, post-doctoral researchers and young scientists with comparable levels of experience to share their research and exchange ideas with their peers.
The 2020 Fuel Cells GRS will focus on the recent advances and developments in fuel cell research with regard to materials, characterization methods, modeling and diagnostics pertinent to low-temperature fuel cells. This meeting will explore the fundamental issues related to fabrication of electrocatalytically active nanomaterials, ionomers, electrode design and fabrication methods, and electrochemical diagnostics. Special emphasis will also be given to advances in experimental, theoretical, and computational modeling work correlating material/electrode structure and their transport and/or kinetic properties. Discussions will progress to applications of these materials and the development of next generation high performance automotive fuel cells with optimized electrode structures and interfaces.
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 25, 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.
