Last ASBS Conference

1–6 December, Sydney, New South Wales

The Systematics Without Borders Conference was held in December 2013 at the University of Sydney. It was a combined conference with Invertebrate Biodiversity & Conservation and the Society of Australian Systematic Biologists, and Australasian Systematic Botany Society. The conference provided "a forum for systematists and other biologists to present the results of their research and to explore the possibilities for collaborating further in the age of integrative biology".
