Each day has a morning session, from 08:30–13:00, and an afternoon session, from 14:30–19:00. Each session has a 30-minute break (10:30–11:00 and 16:30–17:00).

Proposals to amend Chapter F of the Code

 

Chapter F of the Code contains provisions specific to the names of organisms treated as fungi.

Further information on fungal nomenclature is provided on the website of the International Mycological Association (IMA).
