Dear taxacom,

This is a call for the 11th Young Systematists Forum to be held at the Natural History Museum, London, on Wednesday 2nd December 2009. Please see details below.

Many thanks,
David Bass and Tom Richards, Organisers


WEDNESDAY, 2nd December 2009, 9 am

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

The annual Young SystematistsÂ’ 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.

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 at nhm.ac.uk), supplying your name, contact address and stating whether you wish to give an oral or poster presentation.  Space will be allocated subject to availability and to make a balanced programme of animal, plant, algal, microbial, molecular and other research. Non-presenting attendees should also register as above. 

Abstracts must be submitted by e-mail in English no later than 18th November 2009.  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).
