Members of the ISHBH,
The 10th World Congress of Herpetology will be held in Kuching, Sarawak, on the island of Borneo from 5-9 August 2024.
ISHBH should be well represented there, and a great way to promote the society and attract new members is to have at the Congress a special symposium that is dedicated to the history and bibliography of herpetology.
I would like to submit a proposal for such a symposium. I am writing to encourage you to join me, Aaron Bauer, and Thore Koppetsch and talk about your favorite aspect of history or bibliography of herpetology. We are framing the symposium with that broad topic to attract as many of you as possible to join us. We plan on a half-day symposium, allowing us to have 8 to 9 15-minute presentations or 4 to 5 30-minute presentations.
Presenting in the symposium will not prevent you from also giving a research talk at Congress, so please consider this opportunity and JOIN US!!
All I need at this point is your name, your affiliation, a tentative talk title, and, if you are already committed to attending, a written statement that you plan to attend and can afford to get there (Congress organizers cannot guarantee funds for travel to the meeting).
Note: All presentations are expected to be face-to-face at the Conference Centre in Kuching!
Please send these ASAP, and no later than 27 September to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from many of you!!
Chris Bell Secretary, ISHBH
