The Gordon Research Seminar on Physical Organic 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.
The research presented at this seminar will demonstrate the wide breadth of concepts in physical organic chemistry and allow attendees to familiarize themselves with the topics covered at the subsequent Gordon Research Conference. The friendly and collegial atmosphere of the seminar will support discussion of cutting edge science and foster the development of a diverse community of early-career scientists who are ready to take full advantage of the stimulating environment provided by the GRC. Poster presentations and discussion sessions will focus on an array of topics including, but not limited to, supramolecular chemistry, catalysis, mechanistic insights, and predictive modeling.
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 22, 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.
