The Gordon Research Seminar on Plasma Processing Science is an international forum primarily intended for advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior scientists currently pursuing cutting-edge research within the field of Plasma Processing Science. This Seminar precedes the larger Gordon Research Conference on Plasma Processing Science (July 24-29, 2016).
The program of the 2016 Gordon Research Seminar on Plasma Processing Science will highlight recent progress concerning breakthrough innovations in the fields of plasma medicine, plasma interaction with liquids and plasma assisted nanofabrication. Participants are encouraged to showcase and present their pioneering and unpublished research, discuss recent advancements and future directions with established leaders in the field, and build networks with their peers that will lead to a lifetime of scientific collaboration and achievement. Furthermore, in order to promote the discussion of cutting-edge research, Gordon Research Seminars are officially "off-the-record", with no abstracts or proceedings published before, during or after the conference, and ample time is provided between sessions for socializing and informal discussions with fellow attendees. In addition, the 2016 Gordon Research Seminar on Plasma Processing Science will feature a mentoring panel assembled from leading scientists representing industrial word, academia and administration.
This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Plasma Processing Science" Gordon Research Conference (GRC)
. Refer to the associated GRC program page
