Discounts for Early Registration extended to 18 September!

Nearly 200 people from 41 countries have already registered for the Third International Barcode of Life Conference. Registration will be limited to 450 people and we expect to close registration several weeks before the conference, so don’t wait until the last minute!

The organizers want to make the conference as affordable as possible, so the discount for early registration has been extended one week, through Friday, 18 September.

Registration fee entitles you to attend all sessions, provides you with lunches and coffee breaks during the meetings, bus transportation from the two conference hotels to the pre-Conference workshops at UNAM and the conference venue at the Mexican Academy of Sciences, and tickets to the opening reception and the closing banquet. The schedule of registration fees is:

Pre-conference events will be hosted at UNAM. The UNAM library, pictured above, is particularly beautiful when illuminated at night.
