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 Nanoporous Materials and Their Applications 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.
Nanoporous materials have a broad range of capabilities, which have enabled their use in many industrially relevant processes. The utility of each material is driven by understanding and controlling the order and disorder in the system through theoretical understanding, targeted synthesis, and material engineering. This meeting focuses on building relationships between young scientists engaged in the design, synthesis, characterization, and application of porous materials by providing an informal, collaborative environment renowned for facilitating open discussion of unpublished, cutting-edge research. Through crafted discussion sessions as well as casual poster sessions, the GRS aims to accelerate the advancement of fundamental understanding and subsequent application of functional porous materials by facilitating the exchange of ideas in an open scientific forum.
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 7, 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.
