Conference Steering Committee

From setting the conference dates and theme to coordinating all ICCB Organizing Committees, the Conference Steering Committee is in charge of ICCB's scientific and social program before, during and after the conference. The committee is excited to welcome delegates from around the world to Cartagena and is committed to organizing a first-rate sustainable conference that incorporates Colombia's local flavor into this global meeting for conservation science.
