Venue: Flett Lecture Theatre, Natural History Museum, London, UK
The annual Young Systematists’ Forum represents an exciting setting for Masters, PhD and young postdoctoral researchers to present their data, often for the first time, to a scientific audience interested in taxonomy, systematics and phylogenetics. This well-established event provides an important opportunity for budding systematists to discuss their research in front of their peers within a supportive environment. Supervisors and other established systematists are also encouraged to attend.
Registration is FREE.
Send applications by e-mail to YSF.SystematicsAssociation@gmail.com, supplying your name, academic or contact address, stage of your career (MSc student, PhD student, postdoc) and stating whether or not you wish to give an oral or poster presentation. Space will be allocated subject to availability and for a balanced programme of animal, plant, algal, microbial, molecular and other research. Non-presenting attendees are also very welcome – please register as above.
Again the YSF will be held the day after the Molluscan Forum also at the Natural History Museum. Separate registeration required for both meetings. There will also be a meeting on Natural History Collections and Climate Change Research on the 17th (details to be announced shortly). Come for a full week.
Abstracts must be submitted by e-mail in English no later than Friday 23 October 2015. The body text should not exceed 150 words in length. If the presentation is co-authored, the actual speaker (oral) or presenter (poster) must be clearly indicated in BOLD text.
All registered attendants will receive further information about the meeting, including abstracts, by e-mail one week in advance. This information will also be displayed on the Systematics Association website.
