The ISECT 2017 meeting will bring together researchers on all aspects of the palaeontology, geochemistry and stratigraphy of the Ediacaran and Cambrian intervals. The meeting will consist of a two day symposium exploring topics including the placement of the Ediacaran-Cambrian boundary.

Event Date: Friday, July 7, 2017 to Monday, July 10, 2017

We are pleased to invite all specialists on trilobites and related arthropods to attend the 6th International Conference on Trilobites and their Relatives, to be held in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia from 7-10 July 2017.

Event Date: Saturday, July 15, 2017

More details will be available in the near future. Please see the conference website for updates. Exact date not yet know: Mid July 2017.

Event Date: Saturday, July 15, 2017 to Sunday, July 16, 2017

This workshop will bring together the best scientists working on Konservat-Lagerstätten and, in particular, fossil deposits preserving soft tissues of animals and plants.

Konservat-Lagerstätten, fossil deposits that include exceptionally preserved soft tissues of plants and animals, are widely recognised as essential archives of palaeobiological information. Research in the field is accelerating rapidly and is becoming increasingly multidisciplinary, with the integration of new methodological approaches, new fossil discoveries, and refinement of current methods.

Event Date: Tuesday, August 1, 2017 to Monday, August 7, 2017

The Palaeontological Research and Education Centre in cooperation with the Faculty of Science of the Mahasarakham University (Thailand), the University Claude Bernard Lyon1 (France), and the Natural History Museum of Geneva (Switzerland) are pleased to announce and host the 7th INTERNATIONAL MEETING ON MESOZOIC FISHES.

Event Date: Tuesday, August 1, 2017 to Thursday, August 3, 2017

The European Association of Vertebrate Palaeontologists (EAVP) promotes annual international meetings for an interchange of research in all subfields of vertebrate palaeontology in a European location. A major focus is the fostering of international collaboration, paying great attention to the encouragement and assistance for students to become part of projects and a source of future vertebrate palaeontologists.

Event Date: Friday, September 1, 2017 to Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Cambrian Burgess Shale-type fossil Lagerstätten are renowned for providing the best evidence of the Cambrian explosion and have provided a major contribution to our knowledge of all perspectives of the early arthropods. Indeed, many excellent work on the evolution of Cambrian arthropods has been showed by the colleagues in the last decade. The workshop will be focused on recent rapid advances in our understanding in taxonomy, ontogeny and phylogeny of Cambrian arthropods, and hopefully it will prompt us to extend coverage even more widely to encompass additional topics.

Event Date: Tuesday, September 12, 2017 to Friday, September 15, 2017

SVPCA is a meeting for current research in vertebrate palaeontology and comparative vertebrate anatomy, and has been held annually in the UK, Ireland or France since 1953. The meeting is held in conjunction with SPPC, a forum for discussion of fossil preparation, conservation, and related topics co-organised with the Geological Curator’s Group.

Event Date: Thursday, September 14, 2017 to Sunday, September 17, 2017

Every few years the International Meeting on Taphonomy and Fossilization brings together palaeontologists, archaeologists, biologists and sedimentologists as well as other researchers interested in all of aspects of taphonomy, the study of decay and fossilization of organisms.

Previous Taphos meetings have been held in Madrid 1990, Zaragoza 1995, Valencia 2002, Barcelona 2005, Granada 2008, Tübingen 2011 and Ferrara 2014.

Event Date: Monday, July 9, 2018 to Friday, July 13, 2018

The IPC is organized every four year. After Sydney (Australia) in 2002, Beijing (China) in 2006, London (United Kingdom) in 2010 and Mendoza (Argentina) in 2014, it will convene in Paris (France) in 2018.

Under the auspices of the International Palaeontological Association (IPA) and with the participation of the whole French Palaeontological community, “the Fossil week” will be organized in 2018 in Paris, July 9th-13th. This event is a unique opportunity for our community to present its new results and discuss all aspects of our discipline.

Event Date: Sunday, August 12, 2018 to Friday, August 17, 2018

On behalf of the organization committee we would like to extend a warm welcome and invite you to Dublin in August 2018 to attend the 10th European Palaeobotany and Palynology Conference. The disciplines of palaeobotany and palynology are integrative and multidisciplinary by nature. As a community we are constantly seeking new tools and techniques to answer both long-standing and new questions.
