Gordon Research Conferences
About GRC

Mission Statement

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.

In support of this statement, the Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) Board of Trustees is committed to:

  • Ensuring each Conference has a recurring thematic topic and strives to be the overall best meeting in its field,
  • Facilitating the synthesis and evaluation of new ideas, and crystallizing new research directions by ensuring active discussion and presentation of unpublished results in an "off the record" atmosphere,
  • Influencing the culture of science to be inclusive, open to new ideas, engaged with all communities and conducive to egalitarian debate,
  • Making each Conference responsive to the needs of the worldwide scientific community by increasing participation of international scientists and underrepresented minorities,
  • Supporting and encouraging young scientists as they establish initial scientific and professional contacts,
  • Providing a service to the scientific research and development communities through the organization and support of scientific conferences. These services will include:

    • Robust and transparent procedures for establishing, reviewing and governing Conferences,
    • Transparent procedures for establishing new Conferences,
    • Accessible application processes for attendance by scientists worldwide,
    • Formats and venues that encourage discussion and a sense of community,
    • Cost-effective fees and operational practices that maintain the financial stability of GRC.
