Event Description

We are pleased to announce the 2016 "Origins of Life" Gordon early-career seminar (GRS) and subsequent Gordon Research Conference (GRC) will be held Jan 16-17 and 17-22 at Hotel Galvez, Galveston, Texas.

 

Understanding life's origins requires input from many different academic disciplines. Our state of knowledge is developing quickly in recent years as complementary research initiatives, such as "astrobiology" and "artificial life" bring new perspectives, new faces and new information to bear. Even among traditional elements of the field, a major source of progress has been increased flow of information across traditional disciplinary boundaries, as the perceived value of multi- and inter-disciplinary scientific research has risen and teaching has evolved to match.

Gordon Research Seminars are a series of highly successful and unique meetings that enable early-career researchers to become involved at the frontiers of science by sharing with established world leading scientists. In 2016, we seek to break new ground in developing these connections, emphasizing their vital importance to a fast-moving, interdisciplinary field.

 

More information will be announced during 2015 as detailed planning now commences.

 GRC 2016 chair: Stephen Freeland, Director of Interdisciplinary Studies at UMBC, Maryland, USA.

GRS 2016 chair: Omer Markovitch, Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems research group, School of Computing Science, Newcastle University, UK.
