Dr Imen Nouioui, the winner of the WFCC Skerman Award for Taxonomy for 2019, will be invited to attend the meeting to receive the award and give the close Skerman award lecture. The costs of the award and the economic class flight will be supported by the WFCC. Accommodation and subsistence will be supported by LOC as well as the registration fee will be waived.

Due to the short time to award a new scientist the LOC suggest does not open a new call for this year.
