Chairs:
Adrian P. Defante & Sarah Fischer

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 24, 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.

Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description

Overview

This "Science of Adhesion" GRS program complements the topics of the GRC focused around the molecular insight to understanding fracture and adhesion. Unique to the GRS, it provides an environment focused for graduate students and post docs to discuss and exchange cutting edge ideas in adhesion science. The topics cover a range of surface related phenomena such as adhesion, friction, and wetting at many different length scales from single molecules to large scale mechanics. The GRS offers opportunities for technical and professional development through invited talks, poster sessions and career planning. For many attendees, this is their first exposure to this community and it offers perspectives from various backgrounds and most importantly seeks to promote stimulating and open discussion amongst your peers.

Application Instructions

The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 22, 2017. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
