01-Dec-2010 - 01-Dec-2010


Wednesday 1 December 2010, starting at 9 am

Venue: Flett Lecture Theatre, Natural History Museum, London, UK

The annual Young Systematists¢ Forum represents an exciting setting
for postgraduate students 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. Note that this Forum is
held the day after the Molluscan Forum (www.Malacsoc.org.uk), also at
the Natural History Museum. This has been arranged so that both
meetings can be attended.

Prizes will be awarded for the most promising oral and poster
presentation as judged by a small panel on the day.

Registration is FREE. Send applications by e-mail to David Bass
(d.bass@nhm.ac.uk), supplying your name, contact address 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-participating attendees are also very welcome - please
register as above.

Abstracts must be submitted by e-mail in English no later than 15th
November 2010. 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 by e-mail further information
about the meeting, including abstracts, one week in advance. This
information will also be displayed on the Systematics Association
website (www.systass.org).
