The International Conferences on the Biology of Butterflies are international gatherings organized every four years, of primarily professional biologists who study evolutionary biology, behaviour, ecology, systematics, biogeography, genetics, developmental biology, and biodiversity conservation, with butterflies and moths as their focal study organisms. This is an excellent academic and professional forum for latest discoveries and to exchange news in these research areas.

The next (9th) conference will be held in will be held in 2023 at the Czech University of Life Sciences, Prague, Czechia. Details about the conference such as the full scientific programme, registration, and symposia, will be made available soon.
