Registration is now open for the 2017 (June 25-30) Gordon Research Conference (GRC) held at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine on Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology & Geochemistry. The theme of this GRC is “Crossing Boundaries and Seeking Synthesis in the Catchment Sciences.” A full program is available now at https://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?id=12331. Please check it out and planning on attending!
Following the success of our recent GRCs, we are also holding a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) the weekend preceding the GRC for early career scientists and students. The theme is “Defining Disciplinary and Physical Boundaries in a Catchment.” More information about the seminar is also available on the website.
This conference is known for favoring discussion and exchange of ideas over the typical one-way exchange of information offered by most conferences where there are a series of back-to-back presentations, concurrent sessions, and little time for engaging interaction. The GRC format has been successful at creating a rich, engaging, and highly interactive conference on catchment science for over 25 years.
General applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 27, 2017, but it’s not too early to apply now! Registration is limited to 150! The GRS additionally encourages early career scientists and students to submit an abstract before the 24th of March to be considered for an oral presentation during the GRS. GRS attendees are all invited to present a poster during the GRC and can present the same poster during the GRC.
We are anticipating an exciting conference and hope that you can join us! Please help us spread the word about this event.
