The XIII SCAR Biology Symposium will be held in Ōtautahi, Aotearoa (Christchurch, New Zealand), 31 July – 4 August 2023. It will be the first SCAR meeting in three years to take place face-to-face.

The Symposium will feature a comprehensive schedule of keynotes, plenaries and concurrent sessions with a mid-week break for social activities. Organisers have placed particular emphasis on enhancing the program with the “tikanga (traditions) and mātauranga (knowledge) of New Zealand’s indigenous knowledge (mātauranga Māori people)”. Satellite meetings and workshops are to be held the weekends either side of the Symposium.

Support for early career researchers to attend the Symposium will be available.

The call for abstracts opens 7 December 2022 with a deadline of 21 March 2023. More information on the Symposium, including a full list of important dates is available from the conference website.
