The 14th International Ichnofabric Workshop will take place in Taipei under the auspices of the Department of Geosciences, National Taiwan University and the National Taiwan Museum. We cordially invite oral and poster presentations dealing with all aspects of ichnofabric, ichnology, and sediment organism interaction. The workshop will include an intra-workshop field trip to the NE Coast of Taiwan where uplifted Cenozoic sandstones offer exquisite exposure of the trace fossils and their sedimentary context. The workshop will be followed by a “round-the-island” geological excursion of Taiwan from an ichnological perspective perspective, including a visit to the core repository of CPC in Miaoli.

BILINGUAL POPULAR SCIENCE PUBLICATIONSIn collaboration with the National Taiwan Museum we invite contributions of popular science articles to be published in a special issue of the Museum's Quarterly Journal in conjunction with the workshop. The theme of the special issue is trace fossils, and articles should be short, of general interest, and preferably illustrated by captivating art work. Articles can be published in English or Chinese (or bilingually, translated by NTM). Deadline for the submission of manuscripts is OCT 1st to allow for review and translation.
