The Polymers Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) provides a unique opportunity for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience to present and discuss high quality, unpublished research focused on the synthesis, characterization, and application of polymeric materials. The meeting (June 8-9) will directly precede the Polymers Gordon Research Conference (June 9-14) on the campus of Mt. Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA. Those applying to the GRS are strongly encouraged to submit an additional application to the Polymers GRC.
The seminar will include poster sessions and a select number of oral presentations on modern advances in polymer research. Submissions on topics such as regenerative medicine and drug delivery strategies, materials for optics, electronics and energy applications, and design of interfaces and structural hierarchy are encouraged. The GRS will also provide opportunities for career development through presentations from invited speakers working in various fields as well as time for networking.
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 8, 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.
