SVPCA is a meeting for current research in vertebrate palaeontology and comparative vertebrate anatomy, and has been held annually in the UK, Ireland or France since 1953. The meeting is held in conjunction with SPPC, a forum for discussion of fossil preparation, conservation, and related topics co-organised with the Geological Curator’s Group.

The 2017 SVPCA and SPPC meetings will be held at the University of Birmingham, in collaboration with the Lapworth Museum of Geology. The provisional dates for the combined meetings are Tuesday 12th to Thursday 14th September, with a field trip on Friday 15th. This will be the first time in its 65 year history that SVPCA has come to Birmingham, and we are looking forward to welcoming all of you.
