International Diffuse Reflectance Conference (IDRC)
July 29 - August 2, 2018

IDRC 2018 planning is underway.   Stay tuned for updates on IDRC 2018.
IDRC (aka The Chambersburg Conference) follows the “Gordon Conference” format: the registrants attend plenary morning and evening sessions, with afternoons free for elective activities. This allows a unique opportunity for informal interaction with highly accomplished professionals in the field. Since 1982, this unique conference has offered the opportunity to forge lifelong professional relationships and friendships. 

Location

Since its inception in 1982, the IDRC has been held on the picturesque 300-acre campus of Wilson College in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in south central Pennsylvania. Chambersburg’s small-town charm and historical significance provide a delightful backdrop and relaxed atmosphere for the conference’s scientific rigor.

The extremely economical “full” and “student” registration fees include on-site accommodations with clean, well-supplied dormitory rooms, all meals, and the best overall “Chambersburg Conference experience.” Most of the rooms are now air-conditioned. Alternate hotel accommodations are available within a few minutes’ driving time. (update- we may be out of air conditioned rooms)
