As Chair of the International Association of Botanical and Mycological Societies (IABMS) I am trying to help spread news about preparations for the upcoming International Botanical Congress in Madrid, Spain next year. I am sending this message to representatives of numerous botanical, mycological and phycological professional societies around the world. I am hoping that you will pass this news along to your members. Apologies to IABMS member organizations who already received this message.
Planning for the International Botanical Congress is progressing rapidly and the website includes a great deal of useful information. The IBC will be in Madrid in July 2024. The list of invited speakers is very exciting with a diverse group of individuals from around the world addressing a wide range of subjects of broad interest. The list of excursions is also very exciting with a variety of one day and multi-day excursions planned.
The organizers of the IBC are now inviting submissions of abstracts for oral and poster presentations! In addition, online registration is now open with an early registration discount.
See more details on the conference website: https://ibcmadrid2024.com/index.php
See the guidelines for abstract preparation here and the list of 233 accepted symposia here. Prepare your abstract according to the specifications and select 1-3 symposia that are the most appropriate for your presentation. The organizers intend to have abstract acceptance decisions completed before the early registration deadline.
The abstract deadline for oral presentations is November 30, 2023
The deadline for poster abstracts is February 1, 2024.
Register now to receive the early registration discount, which expires on 29 February 2024. Registration information is found here.

We experience a strong interest for the meeting and also that many persons are registering just before deadline. Unfortunately, it is just now impossible to register for the conference dinner. ”Not available” is indicated if you try, but this is incorrect. We still have seats for the conference dinner. I hope this problem will be solved soon. In the mean time either wait to register or send a message to the organizers that you want to attend the conference dinner. For this reason we extend the deadline for application to 2 November.
Systematikdagarna is this year arranged by the Department of Biology, Lund University, in the Ecology Building, Blue Hall. You are now very welcome to register for the meeting and announce if you want to give a talk or present a poster! We have updated the information regarding keynote speakers and the workshop section. The deadline for application is 31 October.
