31st ASPAB Conference

We would like to invite and welcome you to the 31st annual Australasian Society for Phycology and Aquatic Botany (ASPAB) meeting to be held on Magnetic Island off the coast of Townsville, Queensland, Australia.​


The conference will cover all aspects of marine and freshwater botany.  We welcome you and look forward to your participation.

The ice-breaker is planned for the evening (5-7 pm) of the 7th of November and the presentations will be on the 8th – 9th, with an optional excursion on the 10th to visit the MBD algae production facilities (see video links in 3rd circular).  The conference dinner will be held on November 9th and is included in the registration for all delegates.  There will be an optional BBQ for delegates and accompanying persons ($20 pp) at the venue on Wednesday 8th November.


We are also hoping to hold another auction this year, as it was such a great success at the 2013 ASPAB conference in Sydney. In order to do this, we need some fabulous algae and/or science- related items to auction out! Any donations are welcome, including wild-card non-science related items (though for logistical reasons, maybe not your aunts old arm-chair type things). Please email me directly on marie.magnusson@jcu.edu.au with the subject heading ASPAB Auction if you have any items to donate and I will collate a list.


REGISTRATION due 13th October 2017.
