New!! The 2018 programme and abstract booklet is now available here.


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

Registration is FREE. Details can be found here.

Abstracts from earlier YSF meetings can also be viewed.

Venue is best accessed through the Exhibition Road entrance.

The organisers of the 2018 YSF are Dr. Ellinor Michel (Dept Life Science, NHM), Dr. Xavier Aubriot (University of Paris-Sud), Dr. Karen Siu Ting (Queen’s University Belfast) and Yvette Harvey (Royal Horticultural Society Garden).
