Fundamental Phenomena in Ceramics from the Atomistic Level to the Microstructure
The application deadline for this meeting was July 9, 2022. You may still submit an application, which may be considered by the conference chair if there is still room available.
The Solid State Studies in Ceramics Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) offers a unique opportunity for graduate students, post-docs and other young scientists to engage in a vibrant scientific exchange of knowledge in the field of ceramics. Being the third Solid State Studies in Ceramics GRS, the 2022 meeting, “Fundamental Phenomena in Ceramics from the Atomistic Level to the Microstructure”, will allow the young scientific generation to present and share current work in a unique and informal atmosphere.
The seminar will engage in two complementary aspects of cutting edge research in ceramic materials; microstructure and atomistic level characterization. These two will be brought together to offer new insights as for what arises when the two are combined. The seminar will include a broad range of topics at the macroscopic level as well as application derived research. In addition, advanced characterization methods utilized to provide fundamental understanding of phenomena at the atomistic level will be presented. The multiscale approach will allow attendees to investigate the effects of ceramics science done at the atomistic scale on the microstructure and ceramic properties, with the goal of gaining the ability to tailor specific designed properties.
The seminar will consist of talks, poster sessions and a career panel which will give researchers at different early career stages new insights into planning their career ahead. The GRS will include a diverse audience from multiple countries, areas of expertise and career directions (academia, industry and national labs). During the seminar discussions and networking are encouraged.
The seminar 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 seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by May 8, 2022. 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 Information section above.
