Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 27, 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 24, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).
We are very excited to be bringing
back the Gordon Research Seminar on Crystal Growth and Assembly! The GRS on
Crystal Growth and Assembly 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 will bring together
young scientists across various disciplines to present and discuss topics
ranging from the fundamentals of nucleation and crystal growth, to the
formation of thin films, hierarchical structures, biominerals, and beyond.
In particular, this year at the GRS we will highlight a
historical perspective, starting with classical crystal growth concepts
initiated by Gibbs and Ostwald, among others, and explore how these concepts
have evolved into the present and future of crystal growth research. Another
important focus at this GRS will be networking and
professional development, including academic and non-academic career paths
(industry, policy, management, etc).
We invite students from all sub-disciplines of Crystal
Growth and Assembly to submit abstracts for poster and oral presentations.
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 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.
This GRS will be held in conjunction with the "Crystal Growth & Assembly" 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.
