Chemical Reactions at Surfaces - GRC

Reactions at Surface Active Sites: From Single Atoms and 2D Materials to Electrified Interfaces

Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy

From February 12th, 2023 Until February 17th, 2023

The Chemical Reactions at Surfaces GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.

The conference will assemble an interdisciplinary group of world-class experts with background in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics and materials science to present on and discuss fundamental aspects of surface and interface chemistry, relevant to a wide range of technological challenges. Thematic topics include: reactions at single crystal model surfaces, state-of-the-art theoretical methods unraveling fundamental mechanistic insights at the molecular level, reactions at electrified interfaces relevant to applications for energy production and storage, such as fuel cells and batteries. In addition, the latest developments in advanced surface characterization methods, including in-situ spectroscopies and microscopies will be highlighted by world-leaders in the field.
