Electronic Processes in Organic Materials (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Exploring Processes and New Directions in Organic and Hybrid Materials


June 4-5, 2016


Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco
Lucca (Barga), Italy


Kyra N. Schwarz & Timothy S. Gehan

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Electronic Processes in Organic Materials 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.

This meeting seeks to highlight and exchange the latest progress and challenges in organic and hybrid electronics research performed by young and emerging scientists. This seminar will span basic and applied science including discussions of new materials, interfacial phenomena, charge transport and device physics, fundamental processes for rational design, and emerging applications. The weekend will commence with an introductory lecture by invited professors and feature a mentorship session during which emerging scientists can engage with a panel of experienced researchers to equip them with tools and key insights for career development and an effective research experience.
