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: 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: 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: Sunday, September 3, 2017 to Thursday, September 7, 2017

The 50th annual meeting of AASP – The Palynological Society will be held at the British Geological Survey between the 3rd and 7th of September 2017. The meeting will cover all aspects of palynology and traverse the entire chronostratigraphical column. This conference is held jointly with CIMP and The Micropalaeontological Society (TMS) Palynology Group. We hope to welcome you to Keyworth for the Golden Anniversary meeting in 2017!

Event Date: Saturday, September 9, 2017 to Sunday, September 10, 2017

The Friends of Hugh Miller are organising a ‘legacy’ conference aimed at geologists and palaeontologists internationally, and all who have a general interest in Hugh Miller, fossils and the natural world. A keynote speaker will be John Long, Strategic Professor in Palaeontology, from Flinders University, Australia. In addition to the conference there will be a three day fieldtrip to the north of Scotland Jurassic beds, which includes special permissions to explore the famous fish fossil locality in Caithness. Numbers are limited so please book early.

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: Wednesday, March 7, 2018

The study of mass extinctions is one of the most interdisciplinary research areas within Earth and environmental sciences. Recent, major advances have come from a broad spectrum of fields, including atmospheric modelling, high-precision age dating, volcanology, geochemistry, stratigraphy and palaeontology.

The 2018 Lyell Meeting aims to highlight these achievements and showcases the improved understanding we now have of the great environmental catastrophes of the past. The Meeting aims to encompass the full spectrum of crises seen in the Phanerozoic fossil record.

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: Saturday, August 11, 2018 to Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Joint meeting of the Ediacaran and Cambrian subcommissions with three days of topical sessions focusing on Neoproterozoic-Cambrian life and environments. Pre- and post-conference field excursions will be arranged (see circular for details).

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.
