The 2016 Gordon Research Conference on Biointerface Science sought to explore this convergence by offering a broad scientific program,spearheaded by distinguished speakers and discussion leaders, to open a cross-disciplinary conversation. Sessions included 1 a keynotesession on active, dynamic, and adaptive biological interfaces 2 smart and responsive biointerfaces, including biosensors 3 physics andchemistry interfaces 4 advances in characterization of interfaces 5 localization of functions at cellular interfaces, including signaling 6roles of interfaces in cellular colonies, including those of ECM and EPS and 7 importance of interfaces in the origins of life and design ofsynthetic protocells. We also had sessions for Late-Breaking Topics selected from submissions and a concluding Perspective session. Thecross-disciplinary interchange at the GRC helped to identify common interfacial issues, model systems, characterization tools, and develop ashared language. Following a modified GRC format in the spirit of the Fraunfelder Rule, this conference promoted active discussions,offered social time, and facilitated free and open scientific communication across experience levels toward building a vibrant and cohesiveBiointerface Science community.
