9th ABOL meeting 2022
5th Austrian Forum on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services
Dear colleagues and biodiversity enthusiasts
We cordially invite you to the 9th ABOL meeting on November 18th, 2022, which will take place after the 5th Austrian Forum on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (November 17th, 2022). The combined event entitled DAYS OF BIODIVERSITY will be organized as physical event at the Museum Niederösterreich – Haus für Natur.
Registration for the ABOL meeting and the submission of abstracts for talks or flashtalks on the subject of DNA barcoding and its application in practice are now possible (see section Registration!).
We look forward to interesting contributions, lively exchanges and exciting discussions!
Your ABOL coordination team
** The event is planned as a green event **
The registration for the ABOL meeting is now open! Please register via e-mail to email@example.com
The submission of abstracts for talks (15 min + 5 min discussion) and flash talks (5 min + 3 min discussion; no poster presentations this year!) for the ABOL meeting is open until
15thof October 6thof November. For registration please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. For submission of abstracts for talks and flashtalks please also use the same e-mail address.
