The Gaseous Ions: Structures, Energetics and Reactions Gordon Research Seminar aims to bring together graduate students, postdocs and early career researchers to present and discuss cutting-edge research amongst an audience of their peers. The seminar is organized on the weekend just before the associated GRC conference. The meeting's inclusive environment fosters the growth of networks and the development of collaborations.
The seminar will focus on gaseous ions in the forms of clusters, complexes, droplets and biomolecules. Consequently, it will cover topics concerning astrochemistry, atmospheric chemistry, investigation of industrial processes, organic chemistry, surface chemistry and biochemistry. The seminar will also include new developments in instrumentation, ionization techniques, ion spectroscopy and related fields.
The seminar will begin on Saturday with an invited keynote lecture, continue with twelve 15 minute talks selected from the poster abstracts, two informal poster sessions and finish on Sunday afternoon with a mentorship component.
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 November 16, 2018. 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.
