Crystal Growth and Assembly (Gordon Research Seminar)

Start Date 24th Jun 2017
End Date 25th Jun 2017

From Atomic to Hierarchical Assemblies in Crystal Growth

Chairs: Abby Goldman and Wenhao Sun

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.
