Dear BB,

There are five more days until the abstract deadline for the Gordon Research Seminar in Diffraction Methods 2018 at Bates College, Maine (28-29th July 2018).
Applications/abstracts received after this date (28th April) will still be able to attend and present posters, but will not be considered for oral presentations.

This year’s title is Crystallography 2.0: Restructuring the Field Around a New Wave of Experiments

We want to have as many young scientists (Post-docs, PhD candidates & Master’s students) at the GRS (and associated GRC) as possible. For Jessica and myself, the 2016 Diffraction Methods GRS & GRC was the best conference we’ve attended during our PhDs, since it allowed us to present our research directly to our peers in a relaxed setting; it also gave many of us the opportunity to gain first-hand experience as session chairs -- an opportunity that is difficult to find as a young scientist. On top of this, the intimate nature and relatively small size of Gordon conferences helped us to build more long-lasting international connections than at any other conference we have attended.

Of course, the GRS can only be truly successful if a wide variety of viewpoints are represented — so please consider attending.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could also forward this invitation to any young scientists for whom you think this conference might be valuable.

You can apply for the seminar (GRS) here: https://www.grc.org/diffraction-methods-in-structural-biology-grs-conference/2018/.
On this page you can also find a link to the associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC).

We hope to see you in July,
Nicholas Pearce & Jessica Besaw

Chair & Co-Chair,
Gordon Research Seminar in Diffraction Methods, 2018
