If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the conference chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
This conference brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines in which gas-phase ion chemistry and physics play a central role. Topics include fundamental questions in uni- and bimolecular reaction dynamics, advanced spectroscopic techniques and complementary theoretical modeling, ions in the atmosphere and in space, novel techniques to deduce structure and dynamics of biological molecules, and studies on nanoparticles to investigate catalytic properties. The conference will highlight the use of sophisticated experimental techniques, including mass spectrometry, optical spectroscopy and ion mobility, to examine the intrinsic properties of ever more complex systems. Likewise, conference discussions will address recent progress in computational treatments that provide detailed insight into the structure and dynamics of ions in the gas phase.
The focus of each of the nine conference sessions is introduced by the respective discussion leader. The overall program is comprised of a total of 25 invited talks, 12 shorter "late breaking topic" talks, selected shortly before the meeting, and 4 poster sessions. Especially the "late breaking topic" talks as well as the poster sessions will provide opportunities for young investigators to present their research and discuss it with other experts in the field. Furthermore, there will be ample time for programmed as well as ad hoc informal discussions, allowing for the active exchange of results and ideas.
This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Gaseous Ions: Structures, Energetics and Reactions (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
The topics, speakers, and discussion leaders for the conference sessions are displayed below. The conference chair is currently developing their detailed program, which will include the complete meeting schedule, as well as the talk titles for all speakers. The detailed program will be available by October 17, 2018. Please check back for updates.
Poster sessions are an integral part of the our conferences, and offer all conferees an opportunity to discuss their research.
Preparing your GRC poster
Financial assistance is available for qualified applicants through the GRC Carl Storm Underrepresented Minority Fellowship Program. This program provides a grant to underrepresented minority graduate students, postdocs, faculty and scientists to help fund their attendance at their first GRC meeting. Learn more.
