Gesellschaft für Biologische Systematik (GfBS) - 2015

The next Annual Meeting of the Gesellschaft für Biologische Systematik will take place on March 18-21, 2015, at the Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig (ZFMK) in Bonn.


It is now the third time the annual conference of the GfBS takes place in Bonn at the ZFMK, after the meetings in 1998 and 2012. With many participants, these Annual Meetings are a complete success and essential for the promotion of systematics and taxonomy in Germany. The organisers hope for broad interest of systematists in attending the 2015 meeting. After some large and expensive joint conferences of the GfBS with other societies, the next annual meeting will take place in a more “familiar” circle and at a low conference fee.


As special items on the agenda, special workshops (on Saturaday 21. March) will offer for example software training for “Mitogenom Annotation” or “Target DNA enrichment”. For this, a separate registration is necessary later on! In addition, participants will have the chance to visit the Biohistoricum at ZFMK or take part on a tour through the collection.


Registration of posters and talks is possible here.


All topics of biological systematics are welcome! We especially encourage submission of contributions about the topics “The demand of taxonomic knowledge: for whom and in what form?”.


We look forward to your registration!


The organizers at ZFMK,

Wolfgang Wägele & Johannes Dambach
