Biosyst.eu in Gothenburg August 15-18 – register now

Dear systematists,

This is to remind you that the deadline for Early Bird registration to the Biosyst.eu conference in Gothenburg is June 1. You can also register after this date, but the fee would be higher. Also for the subsequent planning of the conference, it would help us if you can register before the deadline.

The program has developed considerably and will cover very interesting topics in the wide field of systematics. You can find an updated version of the program and much more on the conference website: www.biosyst.eu.

Feel welcome to Gothenburg in August!

Systematikdagarna 2015

Welcome to Systematikdagarna 2015!

This year Systematikdagarna will take place at Arkivcentrum Syd in Lund, Monday November 23 – Tuesday November 24.

Systematikdagarna is the yearly conference on systematics arranged by the Swedish Systematists Association. The meeting is open for anyone interested in systematics; amateurs, working systematists, and users of systematics in any form.

Arkivcentrum Syd is the new location of the Biological Museum at Lund University and include the botanical collections and part of the zoological collections. Conference localities and other facilities are also located within Arkivcentrum Syd.

We are aiming at a diverse program covering several recent advances in systematics. Topics included so far are the role of epigenetics in species separation, new findings on paleontology, updates on the implementation of the Nagoya protocol, and more, but not the least, we also hope for interesting contributions by you participants.

The conference will be mainly held in English so that non-Scandinavian participants also can benefit from the conference. The annual meeting of Svenska Systematikföreningen will be held in Swedish.

Arkivcentrum Syd is located at the southeastern part of Lund, but connections to the city center are frequent and fast. There are possibilities to stay at hotels close to the Arkivcentrum Syd or in central Lund. Lunches will be served close to Arkivcentrum, but late afternoon on Monday 23, activities will be arranged at the Botanical Garden and the Historical Museum with the Sven Nilsson exhibition in central Lund, and the conference dinner will be served at AF, Akademiska Föreningen in the historical city centre.

The website for the formal registration will open after the summer. We will then also give more information on lodging and other practical matters, including registration fee.

See you in November!

The organization committee of Systematikdagarna 2015
