IPCG Conference History

IPCG Conferences had their start as the Gordon Conference Seminars back in the 1970’s. The organization ran these meeting until 2009 when the IPCG Conference began hosting its own conferences bi-annually.

Today the IPCG Conference still keeps the spirit of the Gordon Conferences by hosting Graduate Research Seminars in the two days before the conference and allowing ample time for members and students to engage and interact through casual activities as well as the seminar sessions.
