The Victorian Biodiversity Conference (VicBioCon) is an annual scientific conference focused on highlighting biodiversity-related research and management projects based in the state of Victoria, Australia. The conference is held over three days towards the beginning of each year and is organised by a dedicated team of post-graduate students and professionals from a number of Victorian universities and organisations. We are entirely not-for-profit, and each conference would not be possible without the support of our wonderful sponsors.
*** Important update ***
Due to the escalating number of COVID-19 cases and the recent reintroduction of density limits for indoor venues, we have made the difficult decision to move VicBioCon22 online. All short presentations will now be pre-recorded and live streamed during the conference, with plenaries and panel discussions delivered live over Zoom. Workshops will continue as planned, with tickets available to purchase soon.
In addition, we are planning a free online networking event for the evening of Thursday 3rd February,
and (fingers crossed!) an in-person outdoor function on Friday 4th February (tickets available soon).
Conference ticket prices will be updated to reflect these changes, with virtual tickets priced at $15 for students (PhD, Masters, Honours and Undergraduate) and $30 for non-students. If you have already purchased a face-to-face ticket, we be in touch to discuss your options.
We imagine this will be disappointing news for many, but we felt this was the safest and most responsible option given the current circumstances. The Organising Committee will be working hard to transition the event online and we will share more information with you as soon as it is available.
Thank you for your understanding, patience and continued support of the Victorian Biodiversity Conference 2022. To stay up to date with all the news about VicBioCon22, please join our mailing list.
