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.
Please note that the YSF is collaboratively scheduled with 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. Do please consider attending both events!
