The 2011 Adelaide Conference has several goals:

  • Offer training opportunities for newcomers.

The Conference may address any of the following areas of Barcoding:

  • Illegal wildlife and timber trade

  • Quarantine identifications
  • Environmental monitoring & assessment
  • Animal, plant, fungal, protest, bacterial systematics

The Program Committee has designed the conference agenda as a mixture of:

  • Three plenary sessions with presentations of general interest
  • One session with four parallel meetings on barcoding plants, vertebrates, invertebrates, and fungi/microbes
  • One session for viewing poster presentations and exhibit booths. Coffee/tea breaks and lunch service will be in the poster display/exhibit booth area throughout the conference
  • Two sessions with many parallel meetings on taxon-specific discussions
  • One session with parallel meetings devoted to multi-taxon themes such as endangered species, pests and invasive species, biodiversity inventories and monitoring, and disease vectors.
