POSTERS! Following a successful inaugural program last year, we are soliciting posters that will be displayed during the Symposium; posters focused on the topic of this year’s symposium are strongly encouraged, but posters on other topics in systematics, evolution, ecology, and conservation will be considered. Posters should fit onto bulletin boards 4 x 4 ft (1.21 x 1.21 m). Materials may be secured to bulletin boards with push-pins, which will be provided. All posters will be on display for the duration of the Symposium. Abstracts should be sent to Peter Hoch (peter.hoch@mobot.org) for consideration; due to space constraints, not all posters may be accepted; only abstracts/posters from Symposium registrants will be considered. We plan to post the poster abstracts on the Symposium website and to distribute as a printout at the Symposium. Deadline for submission: 22 September 2014.

Registration must be accompanied by a $50.00 registration fee, which also covers the cost of refreshments at the Friday mixer and for beverage break, lunch, and reception on Saturday. There will be no dinner on Saturday; the Symposium will conclude following the reception, after which registrants can make their own dinner plans.  Information on local hotels and motels is available to registrants (click on Accommodation, see below). No refunds will be granted after September 22, 2014.
