Abstract : The Gordon Research Conference on Chronobiology was held from April 30 till May 5 at the hotel II Cioccio, Barga, Italy. Applications for participation were received from 179 scientists, and 144 eventually attended the conference (Appendix A). Of these, 30.9% were graduate students and postdocs, and 41.7% were women. Countries of origin were distributed worldwide: 33% USA and Canada; 50% Western Europe; 4% Eastern Europe; 13% Australia, Asia, South America). Chronobiology is a strongly multidisciplinary field of research. This was reflected in the program of the conference, which spanned the breadth from human circadian rhythms to molecular analysis of rhythms in basteria. The program (appendix B) listed 25 speakers and 9 discussion leaders. In addition to the oral presentations there were four daily poster sessions, during which a total of 85 posters was presented. These were actively attended and led to vivid information exchange and many new contacts between research groups worldwide.
