17th International Zebrafish Conference (IZFC)

Save the Date the International Zebrafish Society (IZFS) has long been committed to reducing barriers to scientific exchange in the community. The Organizing Committee has been working to build on the experience gained from the last 18 months of virtual conferences, to be able to offer both in-person and virtual attendance options for a "Hybrid" format.

The in-person meeting will take place at the beautiful Centre Mont-Royal in the heart of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, June 22-26, 2022.

The IZFC has been THE “go to” meeting for the zebrafish community for more than two decades. Nearly 450 zebrafish community members will be joining live in Montreal for the 17th International Zebrafish Conference and over 150 are attending virtually. We look forward to offering a truly unique and innovative conference that incorporates the best of both in-person and virtual conference experiences.

Important information and dates:
