IGCP 653 session at the 5th International Paleontological Congress (IPC5) Schedule

Hello IGCP 653 community,

The 5th International Paleontological Congress (IPC5) is coming up next week in Paris.  Our project is holding a full day session, and we are pleased to share the schedule with you in advance of the meeting.  If you are in Paris, we hope to see you there!

The programme of the (entire) IPC5 is now online:
The programme of our session S37 is below.
See you soon.
Best wishes,
