Conference Description

The Molecular Interactions and Dynamics Gordon Conference series plays a vital role in presenting pioneering research to a diverse audience. It is justifiably recognized for its broad scope touching on areas ranging from fundamental gas phase, and gas-condensed matter, collision dynamics, to laser-molecule interactions, photophysics, and unimolecular decay. This Conference has traditionally involved both scientists engaged in fundamental research in gas and condensed phases and those who apply those concepts to systems of chemical and physical interest. Topics encompass many of the most productive and exciting areas of chemical physics, including both reactive and nonreactive processes, intermolecular and intramolecular energy transfer, and photodissociation and unimolecular processes. Gas phase studies, van der Waals and cluster studies, gas/surface studies, and nonadiabatic - multiple potential energy surface - phenomena only some other areas considered. For example, in the highly successful 2006 meeting, 6 broadly defined and partially overlapping areas of intermolecular interactions and chemical dynamics were discussed: Clusters, Nonadiabatic processes, Cold Molecules, Reaction Dynamics, Photoelectron probes of dynamics, and New spectroscopies.

Note: Beginning with the 2016 meeting, the title of the Atomic and Molecular Interactions GRC was changed to "Molecular Interactions and Dynamics" in order to accommodate a merge with the Molecular Energy Transfer GRC. The Molecular Interactions and Dynamics GRC reflects the transition of both conference communities into one GRC.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Molecular Interactions & Dynamics" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
