All Africa Botanical Meeting

As we move closer to the 20th congress of AETFAT which will take place in Stellenbosch, South Africa, from 13-17 January 2014 we would like to update you on progress with the conference organization. We invite you to look at the website, http://www.aetfat2014.co.za, where all the conference details and information required for registration and for abstract submission can be accessed.

We would like to draw your attention to some new developments:

1. The conference symposia or themes have now been described in more detail under the programme section on the website. You can therefore see all the interesting fields that will be addressed during the conference, all of which will contribute to an exciting programme. The various symposium convenors have also been indicated and can be contacted for further details about the planned symposium programme and content via the conference organizers (we did not want to post email addresses).

2. A number of post-conference tours and one day pre-conference tours are now available and are presented on the conference website. Please note that accommodation needs to be reserved way in advance and bookings should be made as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The tours will be going to areas of botanical interest but also to areas of exceptional scenic beauty and are strongly recommended. The pre and post conference tours are private undertakings and conference participants interested in joining these tours should contact the tour organiser directly.

3. For those of you that are worried about budgets, the good news is that due to the drop in the value of the South African Rand in relation to major currencies, the conference is actually getting cheaper! May this be a motivating factor for you to attend the conference or perhaps squeeze in a nice tour as well.

We wish to remind you of the cut-off date for the submission of abstracts which is
1 September 2013
which is approaching very soon!

We will make an announcement about the plenary speakers in our next circular at the end of August 2013. Young botanists are again reminded that the Moabi Foundation (see http://www.moabi.nl/) will offer a generous prize of 500 Euro each for the best oral presentation and the best poster presentation by botanists under the age of 35 years.

The organizing secretariat looks forward to welcoming you in South Africa in January 2014 for what promises to be a very stimulating and exciting conference at which many African botanists and those interested in African botany will meet again.
