Conference Description

Starting in 2017, this long-standing Gordon Research Conference will be held every two years (odd year cycle). Historically, this meeting had been held on a triennial basis since 1976 (with one exception in 1982), and occurred one year after the International Photosynthesis Congress. It has served as a major, yet intimate, venue where scientists interested in all aspects of the "carbon-side" of photosynthesis discuss the most exciting and pressing issues in the field. The Conference has strong international representation maintained in part by alternating between sites inside and outside the U.S. It also has an International Co-Chair and Co-Vice Chair who are heavily involved in planning the program. A hallmark of this meeting is its collegial environment for both junior and senior scientists to communicate and discuss their most recent, often unpublished, research. The inaugural Gordon Research Seminar was added in 2014 to further increase opportunities for postdoctoral researchers and graduate students to network, present research, and interact with established scientists.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "CO2 Assimilation in Plants from Genome to Biome" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
