The 18th conference of the EAVP has been postponed from July 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The conference will be hosted by the Ente Geopaleontologico di Pietraroja and the operational office of the Soprintendenza Archeologia, Belle Arti e Paesaggio per le province di Caserta e Benevento in southern Italy, a land of history, art and culture. The Soprintendenza Archeologia has a special significance in the recent history of palaeontological research being the resting place of the exceptionally well-preserved small theropod Scipionyx samniticum named ‘Ciro’, the first dinosaur discovered in Italy. The event is also supported by the SPI (Società Paleontologica Italiana), the Sapienza University of Rome and the University of Florence. Oral and poster sessions are planned as well as flash talk sessions for poster presenters, plus roundtables, workshops, symposia and field-trips.
