3rd Meeting of the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature
Halifax, Nova Scotia, July 21 – July 23, 2008

We are pleased to announce that the 3rd Meeting of the International  
Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature (ISPN) will be held in  
conjunction with a joint meeting of the International Society of  
Protistologists and the International Society for Evolutionary  
Protistology (https://protist2008.dal.ca/). In addition to featuring  
communications on the theory and practice of phylogenetic  
nomenclature, this meeting will be an opportunity to discuss the  
forthcoming release of the PhyloCode and publication of the Companion  
Volume, as well as development of the on-line registration database  
(RegNum). All systematists interested in the development of  
phylogenetic nomenclature are welcome. Discussions and presentations  
at this meeting may influence the
future development of the PhyloCode.

The meeting and associated social gatherings will be held on the  
campus of Dalhousie University, in the centre of Halifax. In order to
