«Due to the uncertainties related to the current COVID-19 pandemic and because we strongly wish to make this a face to face event with friendly conditions to welcome everybody, we have decided to postpone the XVI ISBCW, initially planned for May 2022. We look forward to seeing you at Puerto Iguazú on the 7th – 12th of May, 2023!»

The ISBCW for the first time in South America.

The International Symposium on Biological Control of Weeds (ISBCW) was first organised in 1969, and has been the most important international meeting for weed biocontrol scientists since.


During these meetings scientists from all over the world get together to exchange advances in the discipline, renew ties of friendship and collaboration, and discuss the way forward.


The ISBCW takes place every four years, and this is the first time it will take place in South America.
