2024 International Botanical Congress in Madrid

Earlier this year it was announced that due to the pandemic the next International Botanical Congress will be delayed one year and held in Madrid, Spain, in July 2024. The dates for the rescheduled Botanical Congress are as follows:

  • Nomenclature Section, July 15-19, 2024 
  • Congress, July 21-27, 2024 

The officers of the IBC Organizing Committee are Gonzalo Nieto Feliner (President), Juan Carlos Moreno (Vice-President) and Marcial Escudero (General Secretary). The organizing team has been working hard to form the necessary planning committees, hire the conference venue and conference management team, and prepare a website to provide details on the upcoming Congress. The Congress website is now live and additional details about the Congress will be added as they become available (https://ibcmadrid2024.com/). Information about the members of the Organizing Committee, Scientific Program Committee, and Advisory Committee can be found on the website. 

The organizers look forward to welcoming everyone to Madrid in July, 2024!

Preliminary program and registration for Systematikdagarna 2019!

The preliminary program for Systematikdagarna 18-19 November in Gothenburg is now published. If you have not already registered: 25 October is the last day of early bird registration (after that date, the fee increases with 200 SEK, and you will also not be able to submit applications for oral presentations after 25 October).

For both those who will come to Systematikdagarna, and for those who will not attend the conference, this is also a very good time to pay the membership fee for Svenska Systematikföreningen 2019/2020.

The abstract submission deadline has just been extended to January 25, so there is still time to submit your paper. For detailed guidelines please see here:  http://dnabarcodes2019.org/abstracts/  We need this early deadline in order to run a proper review process of all abstracts before publication in the journal Genome.

Although abstracts can be submitted before registration, please do not hesitate to register. Payment can be made by both credit card or invoice: http://dnabarcodes2019.org/registration/

Last day for early bird registration for Systematikdagarna!

The deadline for early bird registration for Systematikdagarna 2018, to be held in Lund on November 26 and 27, is October 31! Remember to register and send in an abstract if you would like to give a presentation! A preliminary schedule for the meeting is given on https://systematikforeningen.se/verksamhet/systematikdagarna/systematikdagarna-2018/ where you will also find a link to the registration web page. Two plenary talks will pave the way for the rest of the conference. On Monday 26 November, Catarina Rydin (Stockholm University) will talk about the macroevolution of the mysterious Gnetales, and on Tuesday 27 November, Martin Irestedt (Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet) will tell us about the power of museomics for understanding bird of paradise phylogenetics. We have several invited speakers as well, Nicolas Chazot (University of Gothenburg), Petra Korall (Uppsala University), Martin Ryberg (Uppsala University), Johannes Bergsten (Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet) and Jadranka Rota (Lund University).

Come and share your latest research on the systematics of life! Welcome to Lund! 

Best regards,

Niklas Wahlberg (main organiser)
