The deadline for the early bird registration rates for the XVIII  International Botanical Congress  has been extended to 1 March 2011 (closing at midnight at Australian Eastern Summer Time on 1 March). In deciding this, the IBC Organising Committee has taken two factors into account:

The continuing strong level of the Australian dollar against other currencies.
*       The complexities in finalising the talks accepted for the general symposia.

In regard to the second point, individuals who submitted abstracts will be advised shortly whether their submission has been accepted for a symposium or, if not, whether they want it to be included in the program as a poster. The details of the final scientific program will be worked out in February and put on-line in March.
Please note that the extended deadline applies ONLY to registration fees. Poster offers must still be have been submitted by 1 February (apart from those earlier offers that are being converted from talks to posters).
