9th Dresden Meeting on Insect Phylogeny
September 20 – 22, 2019

The Dresden Meetings on Insect Phylogeny are dedicated to a broad variety of topics concerning the phylogeny of insects. This includes both the interordinal and intraordinal levels, both morphological and molecular work, and both extant and fossil taxa, as well as occasional methodological contributions.

The 9th Dresden Meeting on Insect Phylogeny (2019) will not have a particular focus but will generally deal with frontline topics of phylogenetic research in insects. There will be ca. 30 talks presented by high-profile specialists, plus many poster presentations. The language of the Meeting is English.
