To all the women who have made science, and GRC, what it is today.

Happy International Women's Day!

 

 

 

Fall 2021 Conferences

GRC Board of Trustees Decision on the 2021 Conference Season

The health and safety of our conferees are GRC’s top priorities, and the Board of Trustees will not resume in-person conferences until it is safe and appropriate to do so. After careful consideration, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to withdraw the 2021 summer conference season, originally scheduled for May through August. 

Based on the preferences of our conference chairs, a small subset of conferences have been rescheduled to take place in the fall of 2021, and are detailed below. We will continue to monitor the feasibility of this limited fall season, working closely with our venues to take all necessary precautions, and requiring proof of vaccination, negative COVID-19 test results, or proof of antibodies from all attendees. We will make a final decision to run these conferences no later than July 31, 2021. 

Now more than ever, GRC remains committed to our mission, and we look forward to continuing to advance the frontiers of science once we can safely resume in-person conferences. In the interim, please join us for one of our free GRC Connects events in 2021, our virtual initiative to connect with our communities through cutting-edge presentations and discussions during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your continued support of GRC and we hope to connect with you soon.

The GRC Power Hour™

GRC has had a longstanding commitment to inclusion and addressing the challenges women and all underrepresented groups face in achieving equity in science. The Power Hour promotes conversations about the barriers to inclusivity within its 400 communities and has been incredibly popular with both men and women, reflecting growing conversations in the sciences about issues including unconscious bias, mentoring and sponsorship, strategies for addressing harassment and inappropriate behavior, and the culture change needed to support the professional growth of all scientists.

"I remember my first GRC experience because it was where I really felt like I could present new and risky ideas with a warm reception."
-
"GRCs are different from other scientific conferences because they are organized by members of the community, they emphasize new results and they are structured to provide enough time (free of distractions) to interact meaningfully."
-
"GRCs are different from other scientific conferences because they stimulate discussion among researchers from industry, academe and government with a wide range of experience from novice to expert."
-

The Gordon Research Conferences provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, physical and engineering sciences and their interfaces.

Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are:

  • Created by scientists, for scientists
  • Forums to discuss pre-publication research at the forefront of
    your field
  • Informal communities of experts in the field
  • A great opportunity to network with your peers

Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are:

  • Organized by and for young investigators
  • A way to interact with leaders who may later serve as mentors
