Gathering 4 Gardner Biennial Conference

The Gathering, also referred to as G4Gn (“n” denoting the number in the series), is an invitation-only biennial conference that started with G4G1 in 1993. Since the second conference in 1996 the meetings have been held every two years, the most recent being G4G12 in the spring of 2016. To date, all G4Gn conferences have been held in Atlanta, Georgia.

At each Gathering, there are typically lectures, performance art, puzzle and book displays, close-up and stage magic acts, and guided sculpture building. Traditionally, each conference has a Gift Exchange in which attendees swap puzzles, magic tricks, artwork, mathematical papers, novelty items, books and CDs/DVDs.

Typically there are 200-300 attendees between the ages of 8 and 99 from all over the world.
