The use of coherent control techniques to solve problems in quantum mechanical systems is a burgeoning field that crosses multiple disciplines in science and technology. The ever-widening scope of this field comes about naturally from the vast application space of the control methods that continue to be developed and refined. From nascent applications in chemical reaction control, the field of quantum control has expanded to solve problems spanning from physics and chemistry to biology.
This Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is the inaugural Seminar held in the field of quantum control of light and matter. Such Seminars provides graduate students and postdoctoral researchers a unique opportunity to share their cutting-edge, unpublished research with one another. This allows young researchers to develop their presentation skills, learn about the wide range of topics in the field, and expand their network of peers and mentors, all in a welcoming and collaborative environment. In particular, this Seminar will focus on the interdisciplinary nature of the field and seeks to draw from the wide variety of work being done on this field.
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 10, 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.
