Biennial Conferences of the International Biogeography Society are a little different than most conferences – deliberately.  We focus on a shared conference experience for the three symposia each morning, breaking off into four concurrent sessions for the afternoons, followed by two highlighted poster sessions.  The good news is that there’s more shared things to talk about with your new or old conference friends and more opportunities for making connections!  The challenging part is that this means there are less talk slots available than in most conferences.  We work hard to balance this by having two fantastic, very interactive poster sessions (there’s food & drinks & the ability to directly invite conference attendees to your poster) and we are happy to write an explanatory letter for your university regarding the above if it would help with your university funding requirements.  Contact us  with any questions.

Childcare is available free of charge for children ages 3-12 at the conference venue.  There is a nursing room available at the conference centre and babies/nursing mothers are welcome at the conference itself, however children ages 0-2 are unable to be offered childcare due to restrictions that apply regarding facilities and qualification of personnel.  For more information about childcare, please click here.
