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.
Tallinn Old Town is an UNESCO World Heritage Site dating from the 13th century, when a castle was built there by the crusading knights of the Teutonic Order. It developed as a major centre of the Hanseatic League, and its wealth is demonstrated by the opulence of the public buildings and the domestic architecture of the merchants' houses, which have survived to a remarkable degree despite the ravages of fire and war in the intervening centuries.
The goal of the conference is to present and discuss recent progress in studies on all aspects of trilobites and their relatives (e.g. morphology, evolution, phylogeny, ecology, geography). The pre- and post-conference field trips will examine trilobite-bearing rocks from the lower Cambrian to upper Silurian.
