NEWPORT, R.I. - The Gordon Research Conferences, which provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical and physical sciences and their related technologies, will once again be held at Salve Regina throughout the summer.
The Gordon Research Conferences were initiated in 1931 by Dr. Neil Gordon, a chemistry professor at Johns Hopkins University. More than 500 conferences and seminars will be held nationally and internationally in 2012 and 2013 in locations including California, New England and Texas in the United States and Italy, China and Switzerland internationally.
During the conferences, scientists with common professional interests come together for intense discussions and examination of the most advanced aspects of their field. To encourage open communication, participants agree that any information presented during the conference is not for public use, and guests are not permitted to attend lectures and discussion sessions.
Each conference operates relatively autonomously, with each conference chair being completely responsible for the content and conduct of the meeting, as well as the selection of discussion leaders and attendees.
Conferences taking place at Salve Regina this summer include:
