The emergence of new applications and technologies opens a wide range of possibilities regarding new forms of communication in the scientific world. Aware of this we are glad to present the 1st Palaeontological Virtual Congress with the purpose of spreading worldwide the most recent scientific advances in palaeontology in a fast, easy and economical way.
This congress is pioneer in palaeontology, being exclusively developed in a virtual environment. Oral communications and posters about any palaeontological field will be presented through an online platform created ad hoc. The simplicity of this new format allows for low-cost registration fees and saving travel and maintenance expenses. Consequently, this initiative aims to give international projection to the palaeontological research carried out by groups with limited economic resources and promoting the participation of palaeontologists from developing countries.
On the other hand, the 1st Palaeontological Virtual Congress combines the benefits of traditional meetings (i.e., providing a forum for discussion, including guest lectures or the production of an abstract book among other things) with the advantages of the online platforms, which allow reaching a higher number of researches along the world. In this sense, online congresses also enable the creation and the management of new thematic workshops by the participants. We strongly encourage you to send us your own workshop proposals dealing with any palaeontological specific topic. The organizing committee will review your proposal and tell you if it is accepted.
