The University of Adelaide will host the first-ever Southern Hemisphere barcode conference, co-organized by CBOL and co-hosted by several biodiversity institutions and initiatives in Australia. The goals of the conference are: highlighting the great progress barcoding has made since the Mexico City Conference in November 2009; learning about barcoding activities in Australia and the region; and bringing barcoders together to exchange ideas and plan new activities.
The week’s events will start with two days of pre-conference training opportunities in barcoding informatics and lab procedures, with sessions designed for beginners and more advanced barcoders. These are followed by four days of main conference sessions with an afternoon of free time for exploring Adelaide and the nearby beaches, wineries, and nature reserves. The conference program will include the latest developments in iBOL and Australian barcoding.
