TICA Talks is a venue for bringing together fellow synantherologists from across the world in a monthly virtual symposium of all things Compositae (and yes, it is ok to call it Asteraceae). TICA Talks features a main talk (30-40 min) and one or two lightning talks (5 min) though the structure is flexible. If you are interested in giving a talk or attending a talk, please click the appropriate buttons down below. Talks are recorded and posted on the TICA youtube channel.
