This meeting takes place in a relaxed environment with outstanding scientists at all post-undergraduate stages. In this informal atmosphere, discussions begin over breakfast, continue during the afternoon and extend into the evening through convivial gatherings after each session. Early career scientists and students will have the occasion to discuss their unpublished data with distinguished leaders throughout the conference, and will have the opportunity to present their work in dedicated slots throughout the program.

For the second time the conference will incorporate a Gordon Research Seminar as a specific means to foster involvement by scientists at the graduate student and post doctoral level. Planned by and for trainees, it will provide an opportunity for our junior researchers to present seminars and posters in a supportive, interactive environment.
