Superconductivity is found in a wide range of materials, from simple elements to complex systems such as heavy fermions, organics, ruthenates, copper oxides and iron pnictides. Each of these represent a distinct class of materials with many open questions. While the variety of properties may at times seem overwhelming, many concepts and phenomena emerge as common themes of unconventional superconductivity.
This Gordon Research Seminar will bring together PhD students, post-docs and early career scientists to discuss their recent research on superconductivity and frame it within the broader picture. It is an opportunity to share results, ideas and experiences in a relaxed environment. The Gordon Research Seminar will be followed by the week-long Gordon Research Conference (GRC), which will provide an in-depth view of new developments in the field of superconductivity.
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 February 11, 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.
