Website Information

The ComBio2017 website was first placed online in November 2016 and has been accessed 1720 times since then.

Browser Requirements

This site will look best if viewed in a later model (2010+) web browser with full support for the following web standards:

The site should look like this if your browser fully supports these standards, otherwise it will fall back to a slightly simpler look, without round corners, transparency effects, fading effects, and shadowing. Basic site functionality is the same in both cases. You can easily check if your browser can handle these simple requirements:

Javascript/popup test

Cookie test

If you can see a purple box around this white text then your browser supports CSS2. If you can see a shadow under the box then your browser supports CSS3.

If you can see a smooth gradient from orange to transparent then your browser supports PNG transparency.

Internet Explorer users: you may need to add http://www.asbmb.org.au and https://www.asbmb.org.au to your list of trusted websites in order to prevent javascript from being blocked.

The site has been extensively tested and should display as intended using all common modern web browsers and their derivatives:

Any browser released within the last couple of years with complete HTML 4.01, CSS3, javascript and cookie support will display this site 100% correctly. Older browsers with incomplete CSS2 and HTML4.01 support (particularly Netscape 4 and Internet Explorer 4), text mode browsers, and browsers with incomplete transparent PNG support (Internet Explorer 6 and earlier) will not display this site 100% correctly. Those without javascript and cookie support may not actually be usable for online registration/abstract submission. It is increasingly difficult to author attractive and functional modern webpages while maintaining backwards compatibility with superseded browsers which have incomplete support for basic web standards and web security. If you have trouble viewing this site, we highly recommend upgrading your browser using one of the above links.
