We need your input!
Have you ever arrived at a workshop or seminar and found that the organizers picked a room that was too small, and there was no room for you (or that you had to stand through the whole thing)? We want to be sure that this doesn’t happen to any of you at the barcode conference.
Please take a few minutes to complete an online survey that will help us make sure that everyone will have room in the sessions they want to attend. It’s also a great way to organize your plan for participating in the conference! You’ll be asked to look through the agenda for the pre-conference workshops and the afternoon technical sessions during the conference, and mark the ones you plan to attend.
Thanks in advance for helping us make sure that there will be room for you in the sessions you want to attend.
Sign up for Tours
The conference organizers have assembled information on half- and full-day tours in and around Mexico City, and multi-day excursions in Mexico (see Tour Information). If you are interested in one of the multi-day excursions, you must sign up two weeks in advance!
The first of these tours begins on Friday, 6 November so you must sign up by Friday, 23 OCTOBER. Don’t miss these opportunities to see some of Mexico beyond the hotel and conference venues!
The opening reception will be housed at the beautiful Ex Hacienda de Tlalpan. Be sure to keep an eye out for their exotic white peacocks.
The official start of the Third International Barcode of Life Conference will be an opening reception on Monday, 9 November 2009 at 7:30pm. Buses will take conference registrants from the pre-conference workshops at UNAM and from the two conference hotels to the Ex Hacienda de Tlalpan, a historic country estate on the southern outskirts of Mexico City. Bus schedules will be posted on the conference website and in the Conference Program which will be released online on 2 November 2009.
