ARM 2005

 2005 Annual Research Meeting

 Dates: 29 September - 1st October

 Venue: Rome, Italy


The Generation Challenge Program 2005 Annual Research Meeting was held in Rome, Italy, from 29 September through 1 October, with over 150 scientists from 27 countries participating. A poster session was initiated this year, and 87 GCP project posters were presented. Almost every current GCP project PI gave a presentation of their project as well, and PDFs of those presentations can be found below. Please contact the PI directly for copies of individual slides or with questions.

The GCP also held a ?brainstorming session? to collect the feedback and input of participants on what the GCP should have as outputs by 2008 (our mid-way point) and how we should get there. A three-hour session on the last day of the meeting was devoted to this brainstorming exercise, and the participants were split into five large groups and then many smaller breakout groups to discuss a set of output categories and outputs and how to develop projects that will produce those outputs. The reports from the brainstorming session are still trickling in to GCP Headquarters, but the first batch can be found below, and we?ll keep adding them as they come in.
