Gordon Research Conference — Dynamics at Surfaces

28th July 2019   -   2nd August 2019
Salve Regina University, Newport, RI, United States


The 2019 Gordon Research Conference on Dynamics at Surfaces is the 40th anniversary of a meeting held every two years. It brings together the leading experimental and theoretical researchers studying the behavior of molecules interacting with liquid and solid surfaces, as well as phenomena at the liquid-solid interface. It particularly focuses on a molecular level understanding of elementary chemical reactions and physical processes occurring at surfaces and interfaces. Examples of featured topics include: energy conversion processes at interfaces; dynamics of heterogeneous catalysis; dynamics at polymer, membranes and biological interfaces; growth and self-assembly at surfaces; computational approaches to dynamics at surfaces, ultrafast electron dynamics at interfaces, state-to-state scattering, chemical reaction dynamics, non-adiabatic effects in reactive and inelastic scattering of molecules from surfaces, single molecule dynamics at surfaces, surface photochemistry, processes at the surfaces of electrodes and dynamics at soft (e.g. water) interfaces. The conference brings together investigators from a variety of scientific disciplines including chemistry, physics, materials science, geology, biophysics, and astrochemistry. The conference will be preceded by a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) for young researchers (graduate students and post-docs). Furthermore, some young investigators will be selected among the applicants to give an oral presentation.
