Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by December 10, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

Meeting Description

The 2018 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Electrochemistry will highlight the latest advances in fundamental electrochemistry and interface engineering. The Conference will cover a broad range of topics including: electrocatalysis, organic electrochemistry, single entity electrochemistry, batteries, theory, simulations, bioelectrochemistry, and electroanalytical chemistry. The Conference will bring together prominent scientists and engineers at the forefront of their respective specialties, and will provide opportunities for post-doctoral fellows and graduate students to present their work at a preceding Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) and during the GRC poster sessions. The GRC will include a session of 10-minute talks devoted to highlighting the activities of young investigators and to "late-breaking topics". The talks will be chosen from the poster session. The collegial and collaborative atmosphere of both the GRS and GRC, with programmed discussion sessions as well as time for ad hoc informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, will provide an opportunity for rigorous scientific exchange and discussion of the many interdisciplinary areas represented.

Related Meeting

This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Electrochemistry" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
