Gordon Research Conference — Gaseous Ions: Structures, Energetics and Reactions

17th February 2019 - 22nd February 2019
Ventura, CA, United States


This conference brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines in which gas-phase ion chemistry and physics play a central role. Topics include fundamental questions in uni- and bimolecular reaction dynamics, advanced spectroscopic techniques and complementary theoretical modeling, ions in the atmosphere and in space, novel techniques to deduce structure and dynamics of biological molecules, and studies on nanoparticles to investigate catalytic properties. The conference will highlight the use of sophisticated experimental techniques, including mass spectrometry, optical spectroscopy and ion mobility, to examine the intrinsic properties of ever more complex systems. Likewise, conference discussions will address recent progress in computational treatments that provide detailed insight into the structure and dynamics of ions in the gas phase. The focus of each of the nine conference sessions is introduced by the respective discussion leader. The overall program is comprised of a total of 25 invited talks, 12 shorter "late breaking topic" talks, selected shortly before the meeting, and 4 poster sessions. Especially the "late breaking topic" talks as well as the poster sessions will provide opportunities for young investigators to present their research and discuss it with other experts in the field. Furthermore, there will be ample time for programmed as well as ad hoc informal discussions, allowing for the active exchange of results and ideas.
