website: http://grc.org/meetings.aspx?year=2011Application DeadlineApplications for this meeting must be submitted by July 9, 2011. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application as soon as possible. The speaker application deadline is typically 4 months before the start of the meeting, but may vary at the discretion of the Chair. Please refer to the Application Instructions section below for more details (if available).Related Meeting InformationThe Dynamics at Surfaces Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar will be held in conjunction with the Dynamics at Surfaces Gordon Research Conference. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GKRS. Please refer to the Dynamics at Surfaces GRC web page for more information.
The Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar on Dynamics At Surfaces is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting is to discuss recent developments in the diverse research field "Dynamics at Surfaces“ in a non-intimidating atmosphere. Aside from selected student and postdoc talks and posters, this meeting will also feature an introductory overview talk by Prof. Dr. Alan Luntz, as well as a round table discussion on career development.
The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 6, 2011. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.Ecological & Evolutionary Genomics

Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
The 2011 Gordon Conference on Evolutionary & Ecological Genomics will present cutting-edge research on using genomics approaches to study adaptation of organisms to changing environments, genome evolution and population genetics, as well as the evolution of complex phenotypes. In particular, several of the talks this year will highlight evidence for evolution at the molecular and phenotypic levels in response to climate change. A diversity of sessions will highlight recent results from natural as well as experimental populations, and will cover both non-model and model species. There will be an exciting balance between ecologists using genomics to study adaptation in rapidly evolving systems, as well as genomicists using large-scale sequence, expression and functional assays to study variation among populations and species.
The conveners Loretta Johnson (Kansas State University) and Gretchen Hofmann (UC Santa Barbara) are committed to assembling a diverse conference with a mix of high profile established scientists and as well as post-docs and grad students early in their professional careers. We plan to select some submitted abstracts for invited talks. We are actively applying for funds to allow graduate students and others to attend. Although attendance at Gordon Conferences is by application, we intend to admit as many as we can on a first-come-first serve basis. The collegial atmosphere of this Conference, with discussion sessions as well as opportunities for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provides an avenue for scientists from different disciplines to brainstorm and promotes cross-disciplinary collaborations. We hope to see you there, at the University of New England!
Sincerely yours, Seda Gyonjyan, member of Young Biologists Association NGO
- Genes & BehaviorEmerging Model Species, Technologies and Analyses Facilitating Integrative ResearchFebruary 9-14, 2014
Galveston, TXWebsite: http://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?year=2014&program=genesRelated Meeting InformationThe Genes & Behavior Gordon Research Conference was held in conjunction with the Genes & Behavior Gordon Research Seminar. Please refer to the Genes & Behavior GRS web page for more information.
In 2014, the sixth Gordon Research Conference and associated GRS on Genes and Behavior will continue the tradition of bringing together both leading and beginning researchers focusing on investigating behavior in model genetic systems and model behavioral systems. The Conference and Seminar will focus on topics at the interface of behavior, neurobiology, genetics, molecular biology, and evolution and will emphasize the theme of emerging model species, technologies and analyses facilitating integrative research. Talks will cover the use of sequenced genomes across established and emerging organismal models (invertebrates to humans), integration of experimental contexts (field versus laboratory), newly accessibly phenotypes (solitary behavior to social interactions), genetic networks, and levels of analysis (gene, brain, physiology, and populations). Bioinformaticians, behavioral biologists, molecular geneticists, systems biologists, evolutionary biologists and neuroscientists are represented among the speakers so that different perspectives can be evaluated. Ample time is provided for brainstorming. Junior scientists and graduate students are invited to present their work in poster format and exchange ideas with leaders in the field. Some poster presenters will be selected for short talks. The goal, of course, is to better understand how genetics influences the development and expression of normal behavior and disorders. All of the invited speakers and discussion leaders are experts in their fields. Special attention has been given to achieving gender balance and to include experts from the diverse disciplines that must be represented to achieve a broadly based understanding of the influences of genes on behavior. The associated Gordon Research Seminar is being organized by and for graduate students and postdocs, with mentorship from a core of senior participants in the main Conference, with the goal of nurturing and preparing junior scientists so they can participate actively and effectively in the main GRC.Genes & Behavior (GRS)Gordon Research SeminarStudying Behavior Through a Cross-Disciplinary Integration of TechniquesFebruary 8-9, 2014

Please refer to the Genes & Behavior GRC web page for more information.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Genes & Behavior is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The meeting will focus on recent findings and new technologies associated with the molecular, neurobiological and evolutionary mechanics of behavior. We aim to unite researchers exploring a diverse array of systems, ranging from lab based, genetic approaches to natural studies of heritable behavior with an emphasis on cross-disciplinary work that integrates multiple fields and methods.
