Conference Description

Small is different! For over three decades, the Gordon Research Conference on Clusters has focused on phenomena arising when matter becomes small. From the very beginning it was clear that potential applications would need a fundamental understanding of the size dependent changes of physical and chemical properties. Consequently, gas phase properties were the focus of the first conferences in the series. Over time, the deposition of clusters and nanostructures and the applications arising became increasingly important. Cluster assembly offers the prospect of producing designer materials with unique catalytic, optical and electronic properties. This conference series also aims to function as a seed for the development of new fields. Indeed, some topics which are now covered by independent Gordon Conferences (carbon clusters and nanotubes, noble metal nanoparticles, plasmonics, structural nanomaterials, molecular and ionic clusters) can be traced to the original cluster series. This Gordon Conference thus brings together scientists from all avenues of nanoscale science whose interactions offer the prospect of making major advances in this frontier subject.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.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 "Clusters & Nanostructures" 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.
