Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 13, 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 10, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).
The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Carbon
Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) 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 GRS
is the first one in the series of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage.
The 2017 GRS-CCUS will focus on areas
including the next-generation carbon capture technologies, state-of-the-art
carbon utilization and conversion research, progressive carbon storage advances,
up-to-date process optimization, social science research on the public
perception of CCUS, and relevant market/policy considerations. This seminar is
not only aimed at bringing young scientists involved in climate research
together with cutting edge technologies, but will also offer career guidance
for young professionals with profound mentorship sessions. The collegial
atmosphere with open discussions, interactive poster presentations and outdoor
activities is expected to promote extensive collaborations within the CCUS community.
This GRS-CCUS will be
held in conjunction with a Gordon Research Conference on the same topic (GRC-CCUS).
Ideas and outcomes of individual contributions and of the discussions in GRS-CCUS
are envisioned to be passed onto GRC-CCUS to foster multi-directional communications
between students, faculty and industrial researchers.
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 10, 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 "Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage" 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.
