The inaugural ICPGC meeting was held at Umbrae House in Adelaide, South Australia in March 2017. The meeting was hosted by the Australian Collaborative Cerebral Palsy Research Group, under the leadership of Emeritus Professor Alastair MacLennan and Jozef Gecz. The meeting was sponsored by the Cerebral Palsy Alliance and brought together researchers from all over Australia, China, Canada, Sweden, Turkey, Spain and the United States of America to establish a collaborative research network and discuss the development on an online database dedicated to CP genomics.
