About the GIDW
This new virtual symposium (Global Inorganic Discussion Weekdays or GIDW, for short) brings the inorganic (organometallic, main-group, materials, etc.) community together online! 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).
Given the current social distancing policies and travel restrictions, many of our community’s standard conferences have been cancelled, preventing us from sharing our progress in science. To overcome scientific isolation and to celebrate advances in inorganic chemistry, we recently proposed this new initiative (GIDW) on Twitter, which was met with great enthusiasm. The first GIDW session on March 29th, 2020 was a tremendous success with an audience of >200 participants!
Who can participate
This seminar series brings together 1 established researcher, 1 early-career researcher, and 1 PDF/PhD student each Monday 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. These lectures are all hosted on Zoom; participation is as easy as clicking on a link!
Importantly, anyone can participate! Please reach out to Marcus or Saurabh, should you be interested in presenting!
