Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 6, 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.
GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by March 3, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).
It has now been 30 years since the cuprates were discovered. These superconductors have critical temperatures half that of room temperature. That was all it took to grab the attention of scientists desperate to understand, control and exploit this quantum state.
After three decades of intense research, it is fair to say that the community has now a better understanding of what really promotes high temperature superconductivity. We also now have some control over this novel phase thanks to new techniques that allow engineering of synthetic materials. But more importantly, we know that once it reaches its full potential, superconductors will remould the world as we know it.
The 2017 Superconductivity Gordon Research Seminar will be focused on a central question: how can we rationally understand and control correlated and competed phases to reveal the origin of unconventional superconductivity? This seminar gives a unique chance to bring together young scientists to present their work in a non-intimidating environment. Lead by selected mentors, each participant will have the opportunity to interact with a group of inspired peers from all around the world. It will provide a fruitful environment to develop strong collaborative relationships.
We strongly encourage young scientists to apply to this seminar as soon as possible.
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 March 3, 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.
This GRS will be held in conjunction with the "Superconductivity" 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.
