Dear Colleagues, 

The registration for 2019 Science of Adhesion Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) and Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is now open!  These are great events to consider if you are interested in adhesion-related problems. Please refer to the details below, and we look forward to seeing you this July in Massachusetts. 

Science of Adhesion Grodon Research Seminar (GRS) - Harnessing Adhesion Science: Translating Research Advances to Novel Applications

Time: July 20-21, 2019

Location: Mount Hoyoke College, 55 College Street, South Hadley, MA, US 

Organizers: Jingjie Hu (Mayo Clinic) and Jamie A. Booth (University of California, Santa Barbara)

Meeting Description:

This iteration of the GRS will highlight the translation of research advances in adhesion science into novel applications, with sessions on consumer and industrial focused adhesion science, as well as biological adhesion and biomedical applications.

The GRS provides graduate students and post-docs with a unique opportunity to meet peers within adhesion science, present new data, and exchange ideas. The conference will run in conjunction with ‘Science of Adhesion’ Gordon Research Conference (GRC), giving students the chance to present their work to the broader academic community. As past attendees, we believe attending the GRS was one of the most productive and rewarding experiences of our early careers.  

The application is now open at https://www.grc.org/science-of-adhesion-grs-conference/2019/. Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 22, 2019 and any applicant who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by April 20, 2019

GRS program outline:

Keynote Speaker: Omolola Eniola-Adefeso (University of Michigan, USA)

Session Speakers: To be selected from graduate student /postdoc abstracts submitted by April 20, 2019

Mentorship Session - Career Development:

Omolola Eniola-Adefeso (University of Michigan, USA)

Jing Yan (Yale University, USA)

Anand Jagota (Lehigh University, USA)

Alyssa Stark (Villanova University, USA)

 

Science of Adhesion Grodon Research Conference (GRC) - Adhesion and Friction in Extreme Conditions and Translation to Practical Applications

Time: July 21-26, 2019

Location: Mount Hoyoke College, 55 College Street, South Hadley, MA, US 

Organizers: Ali Dhinojwala (University of Akron) and Kevin T. Turner (University of Pennsylvania)

Meeting Description: 

The 2019 GRC/GRS on the Science of Adhesion will focus on outstanding challenges in understanding adhesion and friction in extreme conditions. The sessions will cover theoretical/simulation models to understand adhesion/friction on rough/wet surfaces; experimental measurements under these extreme conditions; understanding gained from biological systems that have to deal with challenging environmental conditions; and novel synthetic adhesives designed for these extreme conditions. The main objective of the meeting is to foster discussion between theorists working on new models for adhesion/friction; experimentalist testing relevant systems; and inspiration of new design/chemistry that comes from biological systems that outperform synthetic adhesives in these extreme conditions. Some of the presentations will be more application driven, including bioinspired adhesives, biomedical adhesives, and haptic sensors for robotics.

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 23, 2019 at https://www.grc.org/science-of-adhesion-conference/2019/

Program Sessions:

Ice and Water Adhesion

Design of Hapatic Surfaces

Friction and Soft Materials

Adhesion on Rough Surfaces

Outstanding Challenges in Adhesion

Novel Adhesives for Extreme Conditions

Biological Adhesives Adapted for Extreme Condistions

Biological Adhesives and Practical Solutions for Biomedical Applications

Keynote Session: Soft Mechanics
