In continuation of the International Meeting of Sapotaceae Researchers that
took place in San Jose, Costa Rica in 2006, the idea emerged between James
Richardson and myself to keep the momentum on by organizing a second issue.

The 2nd International Meeting of Sapotaceae Researchers will take place on
Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd, October 2008 at the Conservatoire et Jardin
botaniques de la Ville de Genève, Switzerland. The place is fully equipped
with audio-visual facilities. We encompass oral presentations of 20’ and
will keep some time to discuss general issues. Publication of proceedings
is not encompassed. It will be an opportunity to visit the G collections,
especially the G-DC herbarium, which contains many types of Sapots
described by Alphonse De Candolle. We might consider to spend the following
week-end in the Swiss Alps if an appropriate number of participants are
interrested (not much Sapotaceae, but nice landscapes...).

Please note that for practical reasons, the number of participants will be
limited to 30. If you intend to participate and would like to receive
further announcements, please send an email to laurent.gautier [(a)]
ville-ge.ch providing the following information :

1) Full name, position, postal and email adresses
2) Do you plan to give a talk at the meeting? If so, please provide :

3) Would you like to facilitate a discussion or workshop at the meeting? If

4) Would you like to visit the herbarium while in Geneva?
5) Are you interrested in joining the excursion in the Swiss Alps?
