Application Deadline

Applications are no longer being accepted for this meeting. If you have been instructed to apply by the Conference Chair, please contact Megan Totten for further instructions.

Meeting Description


The Gordon Research Seminar on X-Ray Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

X-ray science has played a very important role in physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, and in many other fields. Because utilizing advanced light sources like synchrotrons and XFELs has enabled to open new science and the development of novel x-ray characterization methods, this meeting will focus on recent advances in x-ray science and techniques from advanced light sources covering imaging, ultrafast science, time-resolved x-ray characterization, and other new techniques.

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 29, 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.

Related Meeting

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