The annual Young Systematists¹ Forum represents an exciting setting for
Masters, PhD 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.   Non-participating attendees are very welcome -
please register with an email to YSF.SystematicsAssociation at gmail.com
supplying your name & contact address.

The deadline for submission of talks and posters has now passed.
All registered attendants will receive 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
<http://www.systass.org/> ).
Note that the YSF is collaboratively scheduled with the Molluscan Forum of
the Malacological Society, (http://www.malacsoc.org.uk/MolluscanForum.htm),
which is aimed at the same stage participants, also at the NHM the day
before. Consider attending both events!
