I would like to make you aware of the upcoming International Barcode of Life Conference in Trondheim, Norway (June 17-20, 2019). The abstract submission deadline has just been extended to January 25, so there is still time to submit your paper. For detailed guidelines please see here: http://dnabarcodes2019.org/abstracts/ We need this early deadline in order to run a proper review process of all abstracts before publication in the journal Genome.
The Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre and the Norwegian Barcode of Life Network (NorBOL) have the pleasure of inviting you to a symposium on Biodiversity and DNA barcoding in Trondheim November 11-12, 2015. The goal of this conference is to communicate new knowledge on Norwegian species and show how DNA barcoding contributes to our understanding of species diversity, biology and ecology. We think the symposium will be an attractive venue for researchers, student and managers of biodiversity and are pleased to have distinguished speakers from Canada, UK, Finland, Sweden and Norway. Among the confirmed participants are Paul Hebert, Sujeevan Ratnasingham, Natasha de Vere and Tomas Roslin. For more information on the conference, speakers and registration, please visit the symposium website: Biodiversity and DNA barcoding. Welcome!
