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

Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Molecular and Ionic Clusters is an opportunity for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early career scientists to gather in a casual environment to discuss bold and innovative ideas along with their latest findings via an oral and/or poster presentation.

This meeting will focus on the most recent experimental and theoretical insights into the structure and dynamics of molecular and ionic clusters spanning a wide range of size and temperature regimes. This meeting will also provide a forum for attendees to hear from and discuss career paths and future research directions with experts in the field.

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 November 24, 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.
