The Victorian Biodiversity Conference 2021 (11-12 Feb) – registration now open

The Victorian Biodiversity Conference (VicBioCon) is an annual scientific conference focused on highlighting leading biodiversity-related research based in the state of Victoria, Australia.

The conference is held over two days towards the beginning of each year and is organised by a dedicated team of post-graduate students and academics from a number of Victorian universities.

We are entirely non-for-profit, and each conference would not be possible without the support of our wonderful sponsors. Special thanks to the Centre for Integrative Ecology (CIE) for their generous sponsorship which has enabled us to use software to host the conference entirely online, over two days on the 11th and 12th of February 2021.

We also have four workshops on the 10th of February. Please click HERE to view our workshops and reserve your spot.
