In November 2017 the 7th International Barcode of Life Conference took place in South Africa. Impressions can be seen at https://dnabarcodes2017.org/conference-overview-in-images.
Among highly interesting talks on various topics of DNA barcoding, first applications for international funds were drafted. All of them shall help to achieve the goals of the Plantary Biodiversity Mission (http://planetarybiodiversity.org).

Among the partners of this mission is GGBN, the Global Genome Biodiversity Network. The GGBN 2018 conference takes place in Vienna from 22 - 25 May 2018. Note that the early bird registration is open until the 29th of January.
The conference, which starts at the International Day for Biological Diversity, will cover agricultural, forest and environmental biodiversity and their characterization by state-of-the-art genomic, phenomic and molecular tools. For more details see https://meetings.ggbn.org/conference/ggbn/2018.
