Conference Description

The Gaseous Ions: Structures, Energetics and Reactions Gordon Research Conference was initiated in 1991 with the goal of bringing together scientists involved in fundamental studies of gas-phase ions, with those focusing more on practical application of ion processes. The conferences have highlighted fundamental topics, such as molecular and cluster ion spectroscopy, ion chemistry, thermochemistry and solvation, electron attachment/detachment, ion formation, catalysis, and ion-surface interactions. Applications have included atmospheric/astro/aerosol ion chemistry, organic and biomolecule separations and structural analysis, materials preparation, surface modification and analysis by ion-surface interactions, and plasma applications to a range of problems. Both theoretical and experimental aspects have been covered extensively. The conference has had an active contributed poster program, with many presentations by graduate students and postdocs. In recent conferences, work of young investigators has been highlighted in short, hot topic talks.

In 2009, the conference moved to the Hotel Galvez in Galveston, Texas, and the attendees overwhelmingly supported remaining at this venue in subsequent years. The Galvez is a historic hotel with AAA four-diamond rating, located directly across from the beach, which has 20 miles of coastline pedestrian walkway, including the nearby Galveston Island State Park with 4 miles of hiking trails. The hotel has trolley service to downtown Galveston where one can find gardens, art galleries, historic homes, an aquarium, and aviation museum.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.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 "Gaseous Ions: Structures, Energetics & Reactions" 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.
