The research school in biosystematics – ForBio – is happy to welcome you to its third annual meeting March 4-6 2013 at Quality Hotel 33 in Oslo.
Our aim is to bring together scientist in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark from a variety of backgrounds, all working with biosystematics. Leading experts in several fields will give talks, and we invite you to use this meeting as an opportunity to present and discuss your own research.
The meeting is open to anyone interested in biosystematics, and we especially encourage ForBio members and their supervisors to participate. This year the meeting will span three days in an attempt to accommodate all ForBio members who want to give an oral research presentation.
ForBio will cover travel and accommodation costs for ForBio members who present their research (oral or poster). There is no conference or dinner fee.
Please note that the conference will be followed by a bioinformatics workshop (March 7-8) and you can register for the workshop when you register for the annual meeting. More information on the workshop can be found at http://www.forbio.uio.no/events/courses/2013/bioinfoworkshop.html.
Registration and abstract submission deadline is January 20, 2013. Please find more information about the ForBio meeting and how to register at www.forbio.uio.no/events/meeting/2013/index.html
