Dates

July 16-21, 2017

Location

Stonehill College
Easton, MA Site Information

Organizers

Chairs:
Jacques Huot & Bernard Dam

Vice Chairs:
Ned T. Stetson & Michael Hirscher

Application Deadline

The application deadline for this meeting was June 18, 2017. You may still submit an application, which may be considered by the conference chair if there is still room available.

Meeting Description

Since 1981, the "Hydrogen-Metal Systems" conference aim has been to give an opportunity for researchers and students to be exposed to the latest developments in all aspects of metal-hydrogen interactions. The openness and format of the conference makes it an ideal environment for exchange of ideas and establishment of collaborations. All talks are invited but all attendees are welcome to submit a poster. All presentations including the ensuing discussions are considered as private, with the restriction that the given information is not for public use. As there are no parallel sessions, attendees will attend every invited talk. The attendees are invited to present posters on novel and unpublished results in order to stimulate discussions during the evening sessions. A limited number of poster presenters will have the option of presenting a short oral summary of their poster before their respective session. Free afternoons are ideal periods for networking, group discussions, and informal one-on-one interactions. This is a good opportunity for young researchers and students to meet and speak to experts in the field of metal-hydrogen interactions. The 2017 Conference on Hydrogen-Metal Systems will focus on "Fundamental aspects of hydrogen interaction with materials and novel energy applications", addressing the research topics noted in the sessions below.

Related Meeting

This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Hydrogen-Metal Systems" 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.
