Cambrian Burgess Shale-type fossil Lagerstätten are renowned for providing the best evidence of the Cambrian explosion and have provided a major contribution to our knowledge of all perspectives of the early arthropods. Indeed, many excellent work on the evolution of Cambrian arthropods has been showed by the colleagues in the last decade. The workshop will be focused on recent rapid advances in our understanding in taxonomy, ontogeny and phylogeny of Cambrian arthropods, and hopefully it will prompt us to extend coverage even more widely to encompass additional topics. A post-conference field excursion to the Chengjiang Lagerstätte, as well as the Precambrian-Cambrian boundary, at Meishucun, Jinning, Yunnan is also under consideration, pending number of interested participants.
