GIDW - Global Inorganic Discussion Weekdays

This seminar series, the Global Inorganic Discussion Weekdays (GIDW), brings the inorganic (organometallic, main-group, materials, etc.) community together online monthly! The name, GIDW is an homage to the popular regional conferences known as Inorganic Discussion Weekends that occur routinely in the US and Canada (and around the world with other names).

This seminar series brings together 1 established researcher1 early-career researcher, and 1 PDF/PhD student under a common scientific umbrella. These talks are divided as follows: 40 mins for established researchers and 20 mins for ECRs and PDFs/PhDs; 5 mins additional time are provided for audience questions. Importantly, anyone can participate!  If you are interested in presenting in the GIDW series, please contact the organizers.

This two-hour seminar is hosted monthly on Monday at 1:00 pm ET.
