The Gordon Research Seminar on Noble Metal Nanoparticles is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new ideas in a collaborative environment focused on scientific discovery. With that in mind, this meeting will promote discussion of current advances in the field of noble metal nanomaterials including novel synthetic approaches, advanced microscopy techniques, and a broad range of applications including but not limited to catalytic, optical, and biological subfields. Through the inclusion of selected talks, enthusiastic discussion leaders, and relevant posters we hope to facilitate an engaging environment where collaboration and networking are fostered. Throughout the GRS, several noteworthy representatives from both academia and industry will be in attendance to facilitate conversation and give insight to student participants. At the conclusion of the meeting, seminar attendees will participate in a writing workshop that focuses on cover letter writing with feedback from the mentoring committee.
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 March 11, 2022. 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.
