Introduction

The annual Young Systematists' Forum represents an exciting setting for Masters, PhD and young postdoctoral researchers to present their data, often for the first time, to a scientific audience interested in taxonomy, systematics and phylogenetics. This well-established event provides an important opportunity for budding systematists to discuss their research in front of their peers within a supportive environment. Supervisors and other established systematists are also encouraged to attend.

Prizes will be awarded for the most promising oral and poster presentations as judged by a small panel on the day.

The Malacological Society

Again the YSF will be held the day after the Molluscan Forum of the Malacological Society, which is aimed at the same stage participants, also at the NHM. This has been arranged so both meetings can be attended, although if attending both you will have to register for both meetings separately.

Abstracts

Abstracts must be submitted by e-mail in English no later than Friday 28 October 2016 to . The body text should not exceed 150 words in length. Title, authors, and their professional affiliations should be included with the abstracts. If the presentation is co-authored, the actual speaker (oral) or presenter (poster) must be clearly indicated in BOLD text.

If you have presented a talk at the YSF before, we ask that you submit only for a poster presentation, as speaker slots are limited and we want to give as many people a chance as possible. Similarly, if you are presenting at both the YSF and MF, we ask that you not apply for speaking slots in both (or let us know so we can assess).

All registered attendants will receive by e-mail further information about the meeting, including abstracts, one week in advance. This information will also be displayed on the Systematics Association website.
