Inspired by the remarkable success of the first Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) in 2016, and in support to the Gordon Research Conference, the upcoming GRS on Ionic Liquids is a unique opportunity for graduate students, postdocs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience to present and exchange new results and innovative ideas from the cutting-edge of the ionic liquids research. The GRS is particularly dedicated to empowering tomorrow's leaders in the field to build synergistic efforts involving interdisciplinary collaborations across scientific disciplines and bring innovation in the future of ionic liquid applications.
Ionic liquids have risen as promising compounds, based on their flexible design, tunable interactions, and limitless applications. Research groups around the world are simultaneously advancing ionic liquids in numerous directions, interfacing fundamental, applied, and theoretical research, and making this field unique. The breadth of these advances will be explored in oral presentations, poster sessions, and open panel discussion at this GRS. Overall, the GRS is aimed at providing young researchers a highly intellectually-stimulating yet casual environment to present their own research while building a professional network among their peers.
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 31, 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.
