The ISECT 2017 meeting will bring together researchers on all aspects of the palaeontology, geochemistry and stratigraphy of the Ediacaran and Cambrian intervals. The meeting will consist of a two day symposium exploring topics including the placement of the Ediacaran-Cambrian boundary. It will also provide delegates with the opportunity to visit some of Newfoundland's spectacular geological and palaeontological sites, including excursions to the Ediacaran-Cambrian boundary at Fortune Head; the Cambrian-Ordovician boundary in western Newfoundland; the trilobite localities at Manuel's River, and the Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve World Heritage Site, home to some of the world's best assemblages of Ediacaran macrofossils.
