Experience the Premier Conference for Weed Biocontrol

The International Symposium on Biological Control of Weeds (ISBCW) is the most important event for weed biocontrol scientists from all over the world. Approximately every four years, this gathering provides an opportunity for participants to exchange advances, renew ties of friendship, develop new collaborations, and discuss the way forward.

Since its inception in 1969, the symposium has become an essential meeting point for all those involved in weed biocontrol activities.

Join us for the next symposium and be part of this vibrant exchange of ideas, innovations, and developments.

We’re Here to Help

We understand that attending events can sometimes pose challenges. If you or someone you know might face obstacles in participating, please let us know. Your insights are invaluable, and we’re committed to exploring solutions to make the event accessible to everyone who should be at the conference. We hope to increase attendance from countries and regions that are traditionally poorly represented at this symposium, but for whom weed biocontrol is just as important.
