Third Meeting of the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature

The ISPN's third biennial meeting has just been officially announced.

Third Meeting of the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature
Halifax, Nova Scotia, July 21 – July 23, 2008

We are pleased to announce that the 3rd Meeting of the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature (ISPN) will be held in conjunction with a joint meeting of the International Society of Protistologists and the International Society for Evolutionary Protistology (https://protist2008.dal.ca/). In addition to featuring communications on the theory and practice of phylogenetic nomenclature, this meeting will be an opportunity to discuss the forthcoming release of the PhyloCode and publication of the Companion Volume, as well as development of the on-line registration database (RegNum). All systematists interested in the development of phylogenetic nomenclature are welcome. Discussions and presentations at this meeting may influence the future development of the PhyloCode.

The meeting and associated social gatherings will be held on the campus of Dalhousie University, in the centre of Halifax. In order to make the meeting accessible to all scientists, on-campus dormitory-style accommodation will be available, in addition to nearby hotels. Note that U.S. Citizens traveling to Canada will be required to carry passports.
