The Gordon Research Seminar on the Geochemistry of Mineral Deposits is a unique forum for graduate students, and post-docs to present to and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas with not only their peers, but industry and academic leaders.
The 2018 seminar will provide a state-of-the-art appraisal of mineralizing phenomena across all scales, from nanoparticle creation to tectonic plate migration. We have a diverse program of oral and poster presentations planned that will investigate mineralising phenomena, their key geological drivers, and environments that promote their effective operation.
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 May 4, 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.
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.
An outline of the program components for this GRS is displayed below. The seminar chair is currently developing their detailed program schedule, which will include the speakers they select from submitted abstracts, in addition to any additional components outlined below. The detailed program will be available by June 4, 2018. Please check back for updates.
