Welcome to the Gordon Research Conferences (GRC), a non-profit organization managed by and for the benefit of the scientific
community. The Gordon Research Conferences provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier
research in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences, and their related technologies.
Gordon Research Conferences in 2014 and 2015
GRC is organizing nearly 600 Conferences and Seminars in 2014 and 2015. Meetings will be held in New England, California and Texas
in the United States, and internationally in Italy, Spain and Hong Kong, China. Click the Conferences menu on the left for a
complete list of meetings.
For over 75 years, GRC's high-quality, cost-effective meetings have been recognized as the world's premier scientific conferences,
where leading investigators from around the globe discuss their latest work and future challenges in a uniquely informal, interactive format.
Apply to a Gordon Research Conference or Gordon Research Seminar now and see why attendees consistently
rate them "the best conference I've attended this year".

Inviting graduate students and post-docs to join the frontiers of science
GRC is committed to bringing young scientists together to discuss their current research and build informal networks with
their peers that may lead to a lifetime of collaboration and scientific achievement. To that end, GRC, with the Kenan Institute
for Engineering, Technology & Science at North Carolina State University, has established the Gordon Research Seminar
(GRS) program, a series of 2-day meetings organized by graduate students and post-docs with the support of leading scientists
from an associated GRC.
Young investigators are encouraged to visit the Gordon Research Seminars section of our web site.
This page contains helpful information for graduate students and post-docs interested in attending a GRS or GRC.
The first Gordon Research Conference was held in a Baltimore classroom in the summer of 1931. Since then, the number of
sites has expanded to accommodate the growing conference portfolio, and today, GRCs are held year-round in locations all over
The Pier at Ventura
GRC is particularly excited to highlight the following conference locations:
- Bentley University, Waltham, MA - New in 2014
- Melia Golf Vichy Catalan, Girona, Spain - New in 2014

75th Anniversary Celebration (2006)
Gordon Research Conferences have a rich history and 2006 marked our 75th Anniversary at the frontiers of science. As part
of that landmark anniversary, a commemorative publication titled Reflections from the Frontiers was produced in cooperation
with the Chemical Heritage Foundation. Visit www.frontiersofscience.org
