The Gordon Research Seminars provide a unique platform to young researchers, such as graduate students, postdocs and junior group leaders, for exchanging and discussing ideas at the cutting edge. The chairs for the next meeting are elected from the group of participants.
The participants of this meeting will discuss novel results concerning the interaction between and manipulation of the various spin-active systems. Some prototypical examples are ferromagnets, spin-Hall conductors, topological insulators, and materials with spinfull defects. The main topics of the meeting include magnetic textures and their excitations, spin liquids, antiferromagnetic spintronics, magnonics, ultrafast spin dynamics, spin-orbit torques, and spin-Hall phenomena.
The meeting will start with a general introduction into spin dynamics in textured magnets by one of the experts in the field. It will also include an interactive panel discussion on the different career options after a PhD. The panel will be composed of experts from different sectors of the economic market, and will provide useful insights about the expectations and dynamics in their respective sectors.
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.
