Subject: IBC 2011 call for symposia

Dear fellow bryologists,
We would like to remind you of a December deadline for the first call
for submission of symposia for the 2011 IBC, which will be held from 23
to 30 July 2011 in Melbourne. Please check out
for more information. As the local organisers of the IAB presence at the
Conference we would appreciate if you could let Chris and I know of your
plans for bryological symposia. We do not want to influence any
potential submissions but just want to make sure that enough bryological
symposia are organised.

The IBC has the following six themes:
Systematics, evolution, biogeography & biodiversity informatics
Ecology, environmental change & conservation
Structure, development & cellular biology
Genetics, genomics & bioinformatics
Physiology & biochemistry
Economic botany including biotechnology, agriculture & plant breeding
So far we are aware of plans for three bryological symposia, all in the
systematics area. We would be delighted to hear about plans for more
symposia, especially in the other theme areas. The IBC scientific
committee also very much encourages symposia that go across themes.

Instructions for proposals are on the IBC website under 'Call for Symposia'.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for information or help. We look
forward to hearing from you,

Niels Klazenga,
Chris Cargill,
