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!

We're still open for regular registration until May 12. Abstracts are largely in, and we're setting up our conference program.  Watch over the next few weeks for more program information!

Also watch for announcements of the winners of our student travel awards!

Remember to book your hotel by May 1, 2023 in order to get our
preferred rate at the Coast Canmore Hotel. Booking links for hotel
and airport shuttle to get you to/from the venue are available on our
Travel Info page.

Looking to add some time in the mountains or the badlands of
southern Alberta to your travel?  Check out suggestions for things
worth seeing and doing in the area including a ridiculous number
of UNESCO World Heritage Sites on our Travel Info page.

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.
