The Nanoporous Materials and Their Applications 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.
Nanoporous materials and their applications is a dynamic field with an ever-changing landscape. This forum enables young researchers active in the synthesis, characterization, engineering, computational modeling, and application of nanoporous materials to build community and share knowledge. The informal setting helps to facilitate fruitful discussions and cultivate new collaborations that accelerate the development and fundamental understanding of porous materials that can be used to overcome many modern-day challenges. Multiple presentation and discussion sessions, including a keynote lecture, will be supplemented by poster sessions to stimulate close conversations about important developments in the field of porous materials. The weekend will conclude with a panel of established leaders discussing their scientific trajectories and contemporary scientific culture, with an emphasis on how this culture can evolve for the better.
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 30, 2023. 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.
