Event description
The Annual Young Systematists' Forum organised by the Systematics Association.

About this Event

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, phylogenetics and evolution. 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 also at the Natural History Museum. This has been arranged so both meetings can be attended, although if attending both you will have to register for both meetings separately.

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.

Abstract Submission

Abstracts must be submitted by email to YSF.SystematicsAssociation@gmail.com in English no later than Friday 25 October 2019. Please indicate in the email if submitting for oral or poster presentation.

Please use either of the following templates: MSOffice Word or in Open Doc Format.

The body text should not exceed 150 words in length. Title, authors, and their professional affiliations/addresses should be included with the abstracts. If the presentation is co-authored, the actual speaker (oral) or presenter (poster) must be clearly indicated in BOLD text. The file should be in editable format (.doc or .odt, not pdf) and the file should be called "Surname_First-name_YSF2019.doc", for example "Doe_Jane_YSF2019.doc".

If you have presented a talk at the YSF before, we ask that you submit only for a poster presentation, as speaker slots are limited and we want to give as many people a chance as possible. Similarly, if you are presenting at both the YSF and MF, we ask that you not apply for speaking slots in both (or let us know so we can assess).

Sponsors:

Registration to this meeting is free thanks to the generous sponsorship provided by the following organisations.

If you'd like to be a sponsor and provide information on your products on the day, please contact the main organisers.
