The Convergence of Two Major Meetings.

Joint Conference of HGM 2013 and 21st International Congress of Genetics

In 2013, HGM and International Congress of Genetics will join forces to stage one of the world's largest knowledge-sharing platforms for the genetics and genomics community. A broader spectrum of topical issues will be discussed in greater depth. Such mighty collaboration in an equally dynamic destination is a first. The joint conference will take place in Singapore, a destination reputed as one of Asia's best cities to hold a business meeting. Larger than her moniker as the "little red dot", Singapore is a bustling cosmopolitan city that offers an enriching experience that is more than just business.

HGM

Human Genome Meeting (HGM) is the key annual conference organised by the Human Genome Organisation (HUGO). Initially structured as a dedicated meeting for Human Genome Mapping, the HGM has evolved into a major scientific conference for human genetics & genomics, genomic medicine, and genomic biology. The HGM is also an excellent platform for industry partners and bio-technology companies as well as pharmaceutical giants. The HGM is optimally sized to provide scientific depth and breadth, and also close interaction amongst the delegates. Because HUGO is not locked in any specific continent or focused on any single country, our HGM conferences take place in a wide range of host countries across Asia, Europe, the Americas, and the Middle East. Therefore, the HGM is the truly global genomics conference.

International Congress of Genetics

The International Congress of Genetics (ICG) is an open conference for geneticists held once every five years since the founding of the science of genetics more than a century ago. The aim of the Congress is to create a venue where researchers from around the world can reflect on progress made in the scientific study of the mechanisms and consequences of biological inheritance, consider the best of contemporary research and anticipate future developments in their discipline. The International Genetics Federation (IGF) sponsors and helps organise each Congress. The congress to be held in 2013 will be the 21st International Congress of Genetics.
