The Membranes: Materials and Processes GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
Join us for the 2024 Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Membranes: Materials and Processes, where young innovative minds from around the world will converge to explore the cutting-edge developments in membrane science and technology.
In the rapidly evolving landscape of membrane science, the 2024 GRS on Membranes: Materials and Processes invites you to embark on a transformative journey towards a more sustainable future. Our theme, “Bridging Horizons in Membrane Science”, aligns with the 2024 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Membranes: Materials and Processes” and reflects our commitment to fostering innovative interdisciplinary collaboration among industry, academia, and government labs. Together, we aim to drive forward the electrochemical, biological, and chemical-based separation of critical resources for different applications, including but not limiting to gas and liquid separation, energy storage, key elements recovery, and tackle the removal of persistent contaminants like per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAs) and micropollutants. This conference will serve as a beacon for cutting-edge analytical techniques and the characterization of membrane-separated pharmaceuticals and endocrine disruptor environmental contaminants.
Key Conference Highlights:
1. Expert Speakers: Engage with leading experts and pioneers in membrane research as they deliver keynote speeches, share their groundbreaking work, and provide insights into the future of membrane science.
2. Oral and Poster Presentations: The program includes a variety of interesting oral and poster presentations given by the students and young researchers in attendance. This offers a platform for emerging scientists to showcase their work and receive valuable feedback.
3. Networking Opportunities: Connect with peers, mentors, and potential collaborators during social events, and informal gatherings throughout the conference.
4. Career Development: Gain career insights from a small number of distinguished panelists invited from academia and industry. They will participate in a career panel discussion and share their insights on the diverse career opportunities in the field of membrane science.
5. Young Researchers’ Forum: The GRS is dedicated to nurturing the next generation of scientists and engineers. A dedicated platform for emerging scientists to present their work and receive constructive feedback in a supportive environment.
Don’t Miss Out:
The 2024 GRS offers a unique opportunity to be part of a vibrant community of membrane enthusiasts, explore the forefront of scientific innovation, and contribute to the future of this exciting field. Join us at Colby-Sewer College, NH as we unravel the mysteries of membranes and their pivotal role in shaping our world. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details on registration and submission deadlines. We look forward to welcoming you to the 2024 GRS on Membranes: Materials and Processes!
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 21, 2024. 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.
