ForBio Annual Meeting - 2021
We are hopeful to welcome you in person at the Natural History Museum in Oslo, but we'll be equally pleased with a hybrid or fully virtual event. We want to provide a platform to share your research and meet, but this should also be safe and inclusive. It is still unknown if the regulations will allow for physical attendance, or if we will organize a fully virtual ForBio Annual Meeting. Updates about this will be provided in due time.
All MSc and PhD students, postdocs, supervisors, faculty and the Broad biosystematics community are invited to attend the 11 th ForBio Annual Meeting, organized by the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo.
ForBio annual meetings bring scientists and students focused on biosystematics together to talk about their projects and current results, to share experiences on methods, and support networking within the scientific community. We encourage particularly early career researchers to use this meeting as an opportunity to present and discuss their own research in biosystematics and meet peers.
Registration will open in the summer. The registration deadline will be October 15th.
The meeting takes place from Monday Nov 29th to Wednesday Dec 1st 2021. The program and abstract book will be compiled and sent out in November.
All ForBio members and associates are invited to submit contributions to present their research! You will be asked to upload your abstract as a Word file when registering for the meeting. Please use the provided abstract template to format your abstract.
All contributions will be oral. Talks will have 10-15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions. Upon the presenter's approval, these talks will be uploaded on a private server prior to the session. Poster presentations will include a 3-5 min speed talk (4 power-point slides). Posters and power-point slides will be uploaded on a private server for viewing by conference participants. These short talks should give more people the opportunity to present, increase information density and reduce digital meeting fatigue. Please submit your abstract (maximum 350 words) at the time of registration. We endeavor to give all contributions a slot, but will assess abstracts for quality and relevance. Awards will be given out for best talks, best poster and best questions.
