1997 Gordon Research Conference on the

Physics and Chemistry of Laser Diagnostics in Combustion


Poster presentations offer a chance for wider participation in the conference as well as excellent opportunities to address specific issues and stimulate discussion. As such, they have proven to be increasingly popular. In our 1995 conference we had about 90 poster submissions, with the result that we assigned a 4 ft. x 4 ft. space for each presentation. Over twenty posters were given on each of four days of presentation. We will be using the following guidelines to enhance the sessions:

1. All attendees, including invited speakers, are encouraged to submit a poster on recent advances in their work. Posters presented by speakers should not duplicate material presented in their talks. The primary purpose of the posters is to enhance the discussion of forefront issues, so you are encouraged to include unpublished and/or controversial results.

2. Authors are expected to be available at their poster during the 5:00 - 6:00 PM session to which their poster is assigned.

3. Your application to attend the conference must be approved (Marshall Long's responsibility) before your poster can be accepted (Katharina Kohse-Höinghaus's responsibility). We recommend that you mail both the conference application and poster submission (to the right places!) as soon as possible.

4. To facilitate planning, we have instituted a firm postmark deadline of May 16, 1997 for poster submissions. An accepted poster submitted by this date will be guaranteed space. We will accept post-deadline posters on a space-available basis.

5. If you or your group are submitting more than one poster, it would be helpful to rank order your submissions in case of space limitations. Please attach a description (one page, plus figures if needed) and fill in the following information:
