This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The second Gordon Research Conference on the Microbiology of the Built Environment will include expert speakers, poster sessions, and an interactive agenda - all focused on the ecology, control, and positive and negative health impacts of microbes, viruses, allergens and biotoxins in buildings. This year's conference will particularly emphasize air- and water-borne microbes throughout the built environment, in buildings and beyond, especially as they impact human and environmental health and sustainability.
