CETAF, its Members and the worldwide taxonomic community are active players who organise many events of international relevance, in very wide variety of platforms and formats, including from conferences and lectures, seminars, workshops and training courses.
In addition, and complementing the range of events geared towards specialist scientists and policy makers, natural science, exhibitions of natural history and botany are keystone events that help disseminate science and knowledge of nature among the general public. In fact, exhibitions underline the necessity for the global society to commit and engage with science .
The Events presented here are classified into three different categories:
1. Exhibitions, which focus on current relevant issues, that are of interest and aim to motivate the general audience to get increasingly involved with the scientific process, and act upon its discoveries.
2. Trainings, that comprise all actions under which capacity and expertise are built, including seminars and workshops, among others.
3. Conferences, a generic identifier for all types of public sessions and meetings, on a certain subject, either accessible to an open audience, or restricted to a certain number of registered participants.
A fourth category of events, the General Assembly of CETAF, takes place twice per year and is exclusively restricted to CETAF Members and their staff.
The events below highlight the importance of our scientific work and its connection and synergies with other related fields. Please find below the event of your interest, in chronological order, within the field of taxonomy, systematic biology, and related disciplines.

The African Centre for DNA Barcoding, and the University of Johannesburg will be hosting the 7th International Barcode of Life Conference from 20 - 24 November 2017. This is the first time that this event will be held on the African continent and the venue chosen is the Nombolo Mdhluli Conference Centre, Skukuza, located within the heart of African wildlife, the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
The intention is to make this a global conference with a distinctive African flavour, using the event to highlight, support, and encourage African researchers across the continent, and to link them up with the global barcoding network. The conference format will include plenary lectures, parallel sessions comprising both invited talks and contributed talks, and poster presentations. The optional first day (November 20) will be devoted to training workshops. Several student travel bursaries (developing nations) will be made available; see the conference website for more details.
The 7th International Barcode of Life Conference will offer delegates and guests alike an unforgettable networking experience, with a backdrop not found anywhere else on the planet. The prospect of hosting world-leading delegates and experts in the field under African skies is a truly thrilling one.Nombolo Mdhluli Conference CentreAddressKruger National Park1350SkukuzaSouth Africa
