Systematikdagarna 2019

Systematikdagarna 2019 will take place at the University of Gothenburg November 18-19. The conference is jointly arranged by Svenska Systematikföreningen, the University of Gothenburg, the Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre and Artdatabanken (SLU).

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 Conference Centre Wallenberg located at Medicinaregatan 20, Gothenburg. The connections from Gothenburg Central station are numerous and fast. The conference dinner will be served at the Gothenburg Natural History Museum after a short mingle in Botaniska, all within walking distance of each other.
