The Gordon Research Seminar on Vibrational Spectroscopy 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.
This meeting will provide an opportunity for young experimentalists and theoreticians to explore and discuss recent advances in the field of vibrational spectroscopy as they pertain to understanding molecular structure, functions, and dynamics. Early career researchers using molecular vibrations as spectroscopic probes are encouraged to participate. Special emphasis will be placed on spectroscopies that interrogate the structure and dynamics of molecules in gases, biological systems, and across interfaces. This GRS is intended to be highly interactive and to promote a collaborative environment for young researchers to network and socialize with their peers.
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 1, 2020. 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.
