The Structural Nanomaterials 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scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages.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 search and design of structural materials with high strength, high stiffness, high-temperature resistance, high work hardening, stability and other properties is a perpetual research theme in the development of high-performance structural materials. Understanding the fundamentals of nanostructured heterogeneous materials, design criteria at multi length-scales and interfaces, and synergistic effects beyond the simple rule-of-mixture have become a major topic of scientific inquiry for the materials, mechanics, physics, and computer simulation communities.

The 2024 Gordon Research Conference on Structural Nanomaterials will focus on the developments of the design, synthesis, characterization, properties as well as mechanisms of nanostructured materials. The key topics include, but not limited to, heterogeneous materials, advanced characterization (in-situ and ex-situ), nanomechanics, atomistic simulations, and properties and performance under extreme conditions. The conference brings together an international lineup of leading scientists and scholars to share their vision for the future and discuss common interests. Early-career scientists and graduate students are invited to present their work in poster sessions and interact with leaders in the field. The program is designed to promote informal interactions across the boundaries of disciplines and cultures, to identify the future directions of the field.
