This messageĀ is to welcome you all to the 13th ICBF to be held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada (15 – 19 July, 2018). The website is now open ( and should give you some idea about the venue and what to expect! I will be updating the registration information in the next couple of months. In the mean time we are soliciting symposium proposals and this information is posted on the website.

Our meeting will overlap with the last day of the 2018 Calgary Stampede ( I strongly recommend attending the Stampede as it is a great experience and you will not regret it! I have booked our University Hotel (as well as student residences) and they will offer the special conference pricing for two days (13th and 14th) prior to the meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Calgary.
