The mission of the International Association of Bryologists (IAB), as a society, is to strengthen bryology by encouraging interactions among all persons interested in byophytes. 
The International Association of Bryologists (IAB) is an organization established in 1969 at the XI International Botanical Congress in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. The aim of the organization is to promote international cooperation and communication among bryologists, whether amateur or professional. This is achieved through sponsorship and arrangement of meetings and symposia that relate to the various aspects of bryology, and by IAB sponsored publications including The Bryological Times. The Association also supports the publication of reviews, lists, software, and compendia.

Competition for a new logo of IAB

Dear colleagues and friends of the International Association of
Bryologists (IAB),

In this digital age, we feel it is an opportunistic time to update our logo to one that keeps pace with the contemporary age but also reflects the mission and history of the association. The International Association of Bryologists (IAB) is therefore excited to announce an open competition for a new logo of IAB.

Please send your proposals by Dec. 1st to the acting president of IAB (quandt -- uni-bonn.de) or the treasurer (mkonrat -- fieldmuseum.org). Proposals are welcome from IAB members as well as non-members. The IAB council will judge the proposals and the winner will be announced during the world conference of Bryology in Chile 2015. The winner will be awarded 300 USD. The second place winner will receive a five-year IAB membership.

The council is looking forward to your contributions!
Please help the society!

Your impact is highly desired, appreciated and important for a vital association!

On behalf of the council
Dietmar Quandt & Matt von Konrat
Acting President Treasurer
