We have an outstanding list of confirmed speakers and contributors
(below) and our meeting is filling-up fast so please register soon.

Gordon Conferences are recognized as the “world’s premier scientific
conferences”, where 150-200 leading investigators from across the
globe meet biennially for a full week of intense discussion of the
frontier research in their field.

The goal of the Predator-Prey Interactions Gordon Research Conference
is to explore the unique insights to be gained from an interdisciplinary
focus on phenomena specific to predator-prey interactions, and our list
of confirmed speakers and contributors accordingly includes evolutionary
biologists, ecologists, neuroscientists, physiologists, developmental
biologists and human psychologists.

The structure of the meeting aims to foster as much dialogue as possible
in order to facilitate as many new collaborations as possible, that are
sure to lead to new synergies and new avenues of research.

Please visit our updated website that includes details on registration,
organization and the confirmed speakers. Please spread the word about
this exciting new conference among your colleagues and please also
encourage post-docs and students to attend. Our primary objective
is to ensure that every attendee is an active participant.
