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 Laser Diagnostics in Energy and Combustion Science 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.
The GRS provides an open, friendly atmosphere where young scientists can build collaborations, exchange ideas, and have fruitful discussions about their research.
The scope of the GRS on Laser Diagnostics in Energy and Combustion Science is to discuss the latest trends and developments for optical and laser-based diagnostics for combustion and energy science to improve efficiency and reduce our environmental footprint. Topics of the seminar will include newly developed diagnostic techniques as well as their applications, novel laser sources, optical systems, and analysis methods. Non-traditional combustion systems such as combustion of the bio-materials and plasma sources will also be included in the seminar program.
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 April 10, 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.
