Young Systematists’ Forum


Friday, 22 November 2019, 9:30 am

Venue: Flett Lecture Theatre,

Natural History Museum, London, UK

NEW!! Program and Abstract booklet available.



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 finished. See the summary of the day.

If you want to prepare for the next year, abstract submission details can be seen here.

Abstracts from earlier YSF meetings can also be viewed.

The organisers of the 2019 YSF are Dr. Ellinor Michel (Dept Life Science, NHM), Dr. Xavier Aubriot (University of Paris-Sud), Dr. Karen Siu Ting (Queen’s University Belfast), Dr. Pablo Muñoz-Rodríguez (Oxford University) and Yvette Harvey (Royal Horticultural Society Garden).
