This conference has been deferred to 2023 due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back soon for the 2023 schedule.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Hydrogen-Metal Systems is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
It is important to balance the intermittent renewable energy production by energy storage systems in which hydrogen-metal systems will play a key role. Therefore, the focus of the 6th Hydrogen-Metal Systems GRS is to develop a new mindset towards exciting hydrogen-based technologies and new front-line applications with respect to the multifunctionality of hydrogen-metal materials. The market and society will judge on sustainable technology, nevertheless, it is important to start an interaction among academic and industrial research partners right now. While fundamental science topics will include new synthesis approaches, reaction mechanisms, thermodynamics, electrochemical properties, structural properties and numerical studies; the topics for industrial partners will be on feasibility approaches and how to ramp up the technical readiness level of a product.
This seminar will include topics such as hydrogen storage, thermal storage, battery technologies, isotope separation, compressors, superconductivity, sensors, catalysis and overall system development. A mentoring session with leading scientists and industry partners will discuss their career, own experiences and future directions in the field with all the participants.
How can we exploit basic research in hydrogen-metal technologies and move towards industrial applications?
Discover it – be part! Present your research, discuss and experience advancement in hydrogen-metal systems at the 2021 Hydrogen-Metal Systems GRS!
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 March 26, 2021. 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.
