The Gordon Research Seminar on Organometallic Chemistry 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.
This year’s meeting will focus on gathering young, vibrant, and diverse scientists to share their research at the frontier of Organometallic Chemistry. Particular emphasis will be placed on research that uses a creative combination of theory, experiment, and application to navigate chemical landscapes in diverse areas of expertise. At a pivotal time in their career, graduate students and post-docs are also given the opportunity to attend a panel discussion with a broad array of guests who have a research background in Organometallic Chemistry. This forum allows young chemists to not only discuss their scientific results in a relaxed and informal setting, but also ensures they establish meaningful connections and network with others who are poised to be leaders in the Organometallic Chemistry community.
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 6, 2019. 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.
An outline of the program components for this GRS is displayed below. The seminar chair is currently developing their detailed program schedule, which will include the speakers they select from submitted abstracts, in addition to any additional components outlined below. The detailed program will be available by May 6, 2019. Please check back for updates.
