The Gaseous Ions: Structures, Energetics and Reactions GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Gaseous Ions: Spectroscopy, Kinetics and Dynamics is a complimentary meeting hosted in conjunction with the Gordon Research Conference on Gaseous Ions. This is an excellent opportunity for graduate students, postdocs and early career scientists to present their unique research in the company of their peers. The seminar provides an opportunity for young scientists to meet each other, bond and discuss ideas in an open and friendly environment.
The 2023 GRS on Gaseous Ions will bring together researchers focused on cutting edge ion spectroscopy, kinetics and dynamics of gas phase ions and liquid droplets. We will discuss systems of interest in catalysis, proton solvation, biochemistry, astrochemistry and many others. Related to these topics we also discuss technological advances in ion generation, trapping and transport, and detection.
The seminar will begin on the Saturday before the GRC with a keynote lecture followed by twelve 15 minute talks selected from the poster abstracts for the two informal poster sessions that follow. The meeting will conclude with an open forum held by four established professionals in academia, government/non-profit research, and industry roles.
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 13, 2022. 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.
