Application Deadline

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).

Meeting Description

Overview

The first meeting of the Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on complex carbohydrates is a unique opportunity for young scientists (graduate students, post-docs, and early faculty) to present and exchange cutting-edge research and ideas in an environment mainly consisting of their direct peers.

Posters and talks presented at this GRS will focus on the study of carbohydrate chemistry and biology, looking at areas such as synthesis as well as glycans' behavior both in vivo and in silico, among many more. As a specific draw for younger scientists who are as of yet undecided of their future careers, this GRS features a Career Panel of successful members of both traditional and "non-traditional" science-related career paths.

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 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.
