Plan now for BIOCOMM 2020 in sunny Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The BioCommunications Association will be holding its annual meeting BIOCOMM in Santa Fe, New Mexico at the historic Drury hotel from May 19-23, 2020.

Following the huge success of BICOMM 2019, we have listened to feedback from meeting participants and BIOCOMM 2020 will have more workshops providing a greater opportunity to learn new techniques and improve your photographic skill set.

The 2019 meeting was exciting and dynamic. It was great networking with colleagues, discussing technical issues and establishing new connections. Come and experience all this and more at BIOCOMM 2020, the 90th meeting of the BioCommunications Association.
