  1. Hi, thanks for this insightful post. I am leaving for my first Gordon Conference in less than two weeks and am super excited! This article helps me to get an idea what tp expect.

    I had a somewhat naive question for you. What would you suggest to pack, clothes wise? I have heard Gordon conferences have mostly casual attire. Is that true for the day events too, including the poster sessions?

    Thanks again!

    1. Hello!
      I’m glad you enjoyed the post!
      The dress code reflects the atmosphere of the conference itself- very relaxed! You should be able to wear casual clothes to every event on the timetable. I found the poster sessions to be especially casual, with people coming and going as they pleased. I decided to dress a little more smartly when I gave my talk, but this was just a personal decision and certainly not a requirement!

      Have a fantastic time at your conference!
