The increasing use of virtual platforms to communicate science encouraged us to create the 1st Palaeontological Virtual Congress in December 2018, followed by the second edition in May 2020. The two firsts editions were a success, so we are glad to present the third edition of the Palaeontological Virtual Congress. Our purpose is to spread, worldwide, the most recent scientific advances in palaeontology in a fast, easy and economical way.

Since its foundation in 1986 the National Congress of the Mexican Society of Paleontology brings together students and academics from different universities and other institutions to learn, present and discuss a wide variety of topics on vertebrate and invertebrate paleontology, paleobotany, ichnology, palinology, actualistic studies and all kinds of fossils. This academic forum is open to everyone interested in paleontology and it is a good place to promote academic collaboration and interchange for young students and experienced professionals.

This workshop aims to develop an IODP mission-specific platform (MSP) proposal to study two separate but complementary topics in a single expedition: (1) the early diagenetic redistribution of carbon via the microbially driven oxidation of organic carbon, the dissolution of aragonite and the precipitation of calcite, and (2) the palaeoclimatic and palaeoceanographic impacts of Quaternary Monsoon and Indonesian Throughflow variability in the Timor Sea. We encourage both experienced and early career researchers to join us.

The 2022 meeting has been postponed from September 2020 to May/June 2022 (dates TBC). The 9th edition of TAPHOS and the International Council for Archaeozoology will bring together palaeontologists and archaeologists and also calls on other researchers to participate, such as forensic scholars, molecular biologists, histologists, anthropologists. A special tribute will be paid to Sixto Fernández-López, founder of the TAPHOS meetings, and to Peter Andrews for his innovative work on small mammal taphonomic methodology and palaeoenvironmental interpretations.

The Marine Reptile Conference has been rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic. It will now be be held in May 2022 - exact dates TBC. The conference is open to all, and we invite professionals, amateurs and enthusiasts in the field of marine reptiles to attend. The primary focus will be on the fossil record, covering both marine reptiles and other organisms which formed part of their ecosystems, however a session will also take place on modern marine reptiles.

Event Date: Thursday, June 9, 2022 to Saturday, June 11, 2022

Conference on all aspects of Mesozoic terrestrial paleontology, paleoecology, paleoclimatology, and paleogeography. Generally held every 4 years, the pandemic caused the meeting to be delayed by one year. First time in the United States, Utah has been a major center for new discoveries in its nearly complete Mesozoic terrestrial section over the past 25 years. MTE14 includes premeeting field trips to local museums and a 4 day trip up and down through Mesozoic across Utah and a post meeting trip to the region around Dinosaur National Monument.

Decapod crustaceans are an important component in modern ecosystems with an important fossil record. Following the last well attended meeting in Slovenia “7th Symposium on Mesozoic and Cenozoic Decapod Crustaceans” we would like to present the 8th Symposium on Fossil Decapod Crustaceans. Our idea is to organize a face-to-face meeting that will include a two-day symposium and a three-day field excursion.

Georges Cuvier (1769 – 1832), born in Montbéliard, made comparative anatomy a formal science and, by applying its principles, was one of the first to propose reconstructions of extinct animals.

We are planning the 6th International Palaeontological Congress which will be held in Thailand from the 7th to the 11th November 2022 plus fieldtrips and we are now inviting symposium suggestions. We aim to assemble an exciting and highly informative programme. These symposia may run for one or more days and subjects may be on all aspects of our science and its connections to biology and earth and planetary science, from the Archean to the Holocene and cover work from all continents. Suggestions for interdisciplinary, ‘cutting-edge’ and new technology symposia are particularly welcome.
