Invitation from the Chair of the Conference

We extend a warm invitation to you to be part of ComBio2022 to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). After a long pause in our plans, this will be a vibrant return to face-to-face scientific exchange with our colleagues*. ComBio2022 will be held in a spectacular arm of MCEC that is adjacent to the Yarra River and walking distance from numerous restaurants and cafes serving the widest imaginable variety of food. Melbourne is home to many sporting and cultural events and world class museums and galleries plus an aquarium are in the immediate vicinity. There is also an abundance of budget priced accommodation within walking distance of MCEC. ComBio in Melbourne in the Spring of 2022 should be a "must" for all.

*Covid-safe protocols will be in place as advised closer to the date
