WELCOME

Planning for the 20th edition of the International GC×GC Symposium to be held in Canmore, Alberta, Canada.  May 28 to June 1, 2023 is in full swing!

​We are looking forward to welcoming people to the mountains to meet in person once again after far too long a break. I've been to the area a few times over the winter and it is a truly spectacular part of the world!  A great place to get together in person and exchange ideas. We have all the awesome scientific content, updates on new tech from sponsors, and great courses that make this such a wonderful meeting. While this was one of my favourite online meetings over the last two years, I'm happy to put all that in the past and get back to seeing the community together in person.

One new thing this year - since 1D GC doesn't seem to have a dedicated home right now, we will give some space to new developments in GC. After all, most of us still do some 1D stuff now and then, and we can take some teachings from 1D to make our 2D work better.

Early bird registration closes soon, and the abstract deadlines are coming
so register now to take advantage of our early bird pricing.

Chair, GC×GC-20

The Symposium will be held in a beautiful place that is on the traditional territory of Indigenous People who have lived and traveled through these mountains for thousands and thousands of years. In particular, we acknowledge the Shuswap and K’tunaxs (too nah ha), first nations to the west, as well as the Treaty 7 first nations: the Blackfoot, the Kainai (pronounced “gainai”), the Piikani (pronounced Biigani) and the Siksika first nations, the T’suuTina First Nation, the Stoney Nakoda First Nation: the Wesley, Bearspaw and Chiniki bands, as well as the Métis People of Region 3.
