Gordon Research Conferences ®

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.

Statement on Coronavirus Outbreak

As the global coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and since the safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw all remaining 2020 conferences and officially close the 2020 conference season.

Most withdrawn conferences have been rescheduled for 2022. Please visit individual conference programs for more details and look for your conference when the 2022 schedule is published in December 2020.

GRC remains committed to our mission, now more than ever, to “advance the frontiers of science” and we look forward to seeing you in 2021 and 2022. Stay safe and well.

The GRC Power Hourâ„¢

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 volunteered to chair a GRC because I was always impressed by the excellence of the GRC, and having an opportunity to shape one of them was a great honor and a fantastic challenge."
-
"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

Supporting GRC

The Gordon Research Conferences is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization devoted to scientific and educational purposes. Each conference chair is given a conference budget, largely generated from registration fees, to aid in the running of the conference.

Contributions from foundations, governments, and private and industrial organizations provide important supplemental funding to support the attendance of selected scientists and students important to the success of the meeting.

Please support your Gordon Research Conference community by making a tax-deductible contribution to a specific Gordon Research Conference or Gordon Research Seminar today.
