Systematikdagarna 2018

Systematikdagarna 2018 will take place at Lund University November 26-27. The conference is jointly arranged by Svenska Systematikföreningen, the University of Lund and the Swedish Taxonomy Initiative (STI) / Svenska artprojektet.

For whom?

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.

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.

Conference location

The conference will be held at the Department of Biology, Lund University in the Blue Hall of the Ecology Building (Blåhallen, Ekologihuset). In addition to the Department of Biology, the entomological collections of the Biological Museum are housed in the same building. The Department of Biology is located at the northern edge of Lund (Sölvegatan 37) and connections to the area from central Lund are frequent and fast. The conference dinner will be served at AF, Akademiska Föreningen, in the historical city center.

If you wish to give an oral presentation, the last day for registration and abstract submission is October 31. Poster abstracts can be submitted until the last day of registration (see below). Type of presentation is specified in the registration form. When registering, please specify the title of your presentation, the author list, and a short abstract (maximum 1000 characters).
