Welcome to the II Iberian Congress of Biological Systematics (CISA2013) hosted by the Zoological Systematics and Evolution Research Group, the Biodiversity Research Institute (UB), the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF), the Catalan Society of Biology and the Natural History Museum of Barcelona. The Organizing and Scientific Committees have worked to offer an exciting program that combines outstanding plenary speakers, a mini-symposium on 'Cataloguing Biodversty in the 21st Century' and social activities to enhance scientific discussion in a relaxed atmosphere.

As its previous edition, CISA2013 aims to provide an arena for presenting leading research in biosystematics, to encourage participation of young researchers and stir up fruitful discussion in the field.
