This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The 2020 Inorganic Chemistry Gordon Conference will celebrate the breadth of Inorganic Chemistry, with a particular focus on how advances in fundamental Inorganic Chemistry (from synthesis to characterization to computation) provide a key launchpad for innovations in real world applications. This conference will showcase a diverse group of speakers and discussion leaders spanning different stages in their careers in academia, national labs, and industry. Sessions will span topics ranging from small molecules to clusters and nanoparticles, as well as extended solids and composites. Subtopics will include catalysis, energy storage, bioinorganic chemistry, and innovative structures. A focus, consistent with the mission of Gordon Conferences, will be on novel unpublished work.
The strength of the Inorganic Gordon Conference is the culture of community that values sharing ideas across the very broad spectrum of our field. This forum enables the formation of new collaborations, networking, and the identification of emerging areas of research. There will be an opportunity for poster presenters to be selected for oral presentations. All participants are encouraged to participate in this poster competition by coming to the GRC with a small hard copy of their poster, to be submitted to the selection committee, and by bringing an electronic slide presentation.
