YSF - 17th Young Systematists' Forum

9:30 - 20th November 2015

Flett Lecture Theatre, Natural History Museum, London, UK

The annual Young Systematists

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.

Registration is FREE.

Send applications by e-mail to YSF.SystematicsAssociation@gmail.com supplying your name, academic or contact address, stage of your career (MSc student, PhD student, 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.
