Event Description

The Scientific Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that the 6th International Barcode of Life Conference will be held from August 18 – 21, 2015 at the University of Guelph, one of Canada’s major life science universities. Guelph couples easy access to a major airport with the simple logistics of a small Canadian city, ensuring that conference participants will be able to focus on science.

Since 2003, DNA barcoding has become the largest research program in biodiversity science, one examining all eukaryote kingdoms and spanning many nations. Reflecting the scope of the program, numerous major international collaborative projects are underway. The 6th Conference will sustain traditions established by the five earlier conferences; it will showcase the latest scientific achievements and socio-economic implications of work conducted by the DNA barcode research community. The theme of the 6th Conference, Barcodes to Biomes, signals the ongoing expansion of our community’s research agenda from studies on particular sets of species in particular places to work which is creating the capability to examine entire biotic assembles at local and global scales.

The scientific program for the 6th Conference will include 30 Keynote and Plenary presentations delivered by researchers whose past scientific contributions have been extremely influential. However, it is certain that the scientific impact of the conference will be greatly enhanced by discussions arising from the parallel sessions and poster presentations. Aside from these core elements of the conference program, pre-conference workshops will provide a forum for detailed discussions of major topics, while post-conference excursions will facilitate further networking.

We look forward to welcoming you to Guelph for the 6th International Barcode of Life Conference.

In case you haven't heard already through other sources: The deadline for early registration at the 6th International Barcode of Life Conference has been extended to June 15th, to allow more time for those awaiting the results of the abstract selection process to take advantage of the early registration fees.
