Society for Systematic Biologists
Call for 2010 Symposia

Evolution Meeting
Portland State University
25-29 June, 2010.

The Society of Systematic Biologists invites proposals for symposia at the
2010 Evolution meeting to be held in Portland, Oregon, from 25-29 June
2010.  The meeting will be held jointly with the American Society of
Naturalists and the Society for the Study of Evolution, and our host is
Portland State University.

Proposals should include (1) a descriptive title, (2) one or two
paragraphs explaining the purpose of the symposium and its relevance to
systematics, (3) a list of presentations including proposed speakers,
their institutions or affiliations, and their presentation titles, (4) an
indication of whether the speakers have been invited and whether they have
agreed to participate, and (5) the proposed length of each talk.  Symposia
are restricted to half-day sessions. The society is particularly
interested in symposia whose topics do not overlap with those from
previous meetings (see SSB website for past symposia), that introduce new
ideas or synthesize important concepts, or those that are particularly
good examples of the analysis of empirical data. Proposals that unite
systematics with other fields are also desirable. We encourage
participation from young investigators and others typically
under-represented in symposia.

Proposals will be evaluated at the SSB Council meeting during the 2009
annual meeting in Moscow, Idaho.  Soon after, organizers will be notified
of the status of their proposals.  Selected symposia will receive funds to
partially defer participant costs or honoraria.

Proposals should be submitted by email to the Program Chairperson:
Kelly R. Zamudio
