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

The annual Young Systematists’ 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.

Again the YSF will be held the day after the Molluscan Forum (http://www.malacsoc.org.uk/MolluscanForum.htm ) also at the NHM, so that you can attned both meetings. If you are attending both you will need to register for each meeting separately. Since talk slots are limited, we ask that you register for a talk in one meeting and poster in the other, so everyone gets time in the limelight!

Registration is FREE.
Send applications by e-mail to (YSF.SystematicsAssociation at gmail.com<mailto:YSF.SystematicsAssociation at gmail.com>), supplying your name, contact and academic address, academic level (MSc student, PhD student or postdoc), and stating whether or not you wish to give an oral or poster presentation. Space will be allocated subject to availability and for a balanced programme of animal, plant, algal, microbial, molecular and other research. Non-presenting attendees are also very welcome - please register as above.

Abstracts must be submitted by e-mail in English no later than Friday 24 October 2014. 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 further information about the meeting, including abstracts, by e-mail one week in advance. This information will also be displayed on the Systematics Association website (www.systass.org<http://www.systass.org/>).
