BioSyst.EU, 15-18 augusti 2017

The third meeting of BioSyst.EU will be organised by the Swedish Systematics Association in corporation with the University of Gothenburg and will be held August 15–18, 2017 at the Wallenberg Conference Centre, Gothenburg, Sweden. The meeting will feature invited thematic symposia as well as open sessions on systematic and evolutionary biology.

More information on the meeting, and registration forms, are available at www.conferencemanager.se/BiosystEU2017.

BioSyst.EU represents European scientists dealing with topics of systematic biology. It considers itself as a collaborative counterpart to the Consortium of European Taxonomic Facilities (CETAF) where European Natural History Institutions have joined, whereas in BioSyst.EU individual scientists are to be represented via their national or regional societies. Svenska Systematikföreningen is a member of BioSyst.EU.

ForBio Annual Meeting 2016 in Trondheim

ForBio is organising its annual meeting in Trondheim and registration is now open. ForBio annual meetings aim to gather scientists and students working on or interested in biosystematics in order discuss about current projects and results, share experience on methods and strengthen networking within the scientific community. This year, the meeting will be held in Trondheim, Norway, from Monday April 25th to Wednesday 27th. Registration deadline March 1st.

Keynote speakers will be invited to this meeting and will give valuable talks on the state of the art within the field of taxonomy and systematics, with the objective to inspire members on how cutting edge methods can innovate our field. We encourage attendees to use this meeting as an opportunity to present and discuss their own research as it provides a platform for exchange and dialogue about biosystematics.

There is no registration fee and you are all welcome to participate. ForBio members (PhD students and Postdocs) presenting their research (oral or poster) will have free travel and shared accommodation booked through ForBio.

For more information and registration please visit the website:

Draft programme for Systematikdagarna 23-24 November in Lund is now published at https://systematikforeningen.se/verksamhet/systematikdagarna/systematikdagarna-2015/. Registration is also open. Welcome!

For those who want to register to Systematikdagarna and already have an account on systematikforeningen.se: please log in before starting registration.

For those who do not have an account on systematikforeningen.se: you can register for Systematikdagarna without a user account. If you want to create a user account on systematikforeningen.se, you might experience some problems (unfortunately the form doesn’t tell you why your account can’t be created. Common errors include: e-mail address already associated with an account, you forgot one of the mandatory fields, password too short or you didn’t get the last question right. When you have succeeded with your account creation, instead of a “Welcome to Systematikföreningen” e-mail, you might get a “Password changed” confirmation e-mail). Sorry about that, will try to fix it.

Please report any other web site errors to webmaster—snabela—systematikforeningen.se
