Special message from the organisers

This message is to let you know that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone ComBio2020. The conference will now be called ComBio2022 and will still be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from Tuesday, 27 September 2022 (registration in late afternoon), with the full program commencing on Wednesday, 28 September and running through to Friday, 30 September 2022 inclusive. Thanks to our great organizing committee, the program is already very advanced with most of the symposium sessions, chairs and invited speakers in place.

We are in the process of updating our website and, once this is completed, we will send all past and present Society members a further email.

Between now and then we will endeavour to keep our scientific community invigorated with on-line forums and other communications. We welcome suggestions!
