The Gordon Research Seminar on Organic Geochemistry 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 aim of this meeting is to create an informal and open atmosphere for early career scientists to discuss research at the intersection of earth sciences, isotope geochemistry, microbiology, paleoclimate, and petroleum science. We welcome the submission of abstracts that can contain unfinished yet thought-provoking and innovative work, including work highlighting novel analytical techniques adapted for questions in organic geochemistry. This meeting will include a discussion panel where members of our community at different career stages will share personal experiences and advice on how to thrive during the PhD, post-doc, and beyond.
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 1, 2020. 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.
