Gordon Conference Assembles in Massachusetts
Richard Palmer and Lai-Sheng Wang (Brown University, USA) are chairing the 2011 edition of the two-yearly Gordon Research Conference on Clusters, Nanocrystals and Nanostructures at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. The Clusters GRC is the most popular Gordon Conference at the site this year with over 170 attendees; 20 delegates had to be rejected through lack of space. A spectacular cast of speakers includes the best of British - Sir Fraser Stoddart, once Head of Birmingham Chemistry and now at Northwestern, and Russell Cowburn from Cambridge. Richard Palmer comments "to be elected to Chair a Gordon conference is definitely a career highlight; working with Lai Sheng on the program has been a real pleasure". Martin Cuddy and Miriam Dowle present their posters this afternoon, and Ziyou Li is chairing a session.
