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.
