We are planning to have one final additional meeting of IGCP 653 participants in this fourth year of our project: IGCP participants will meet during the 63rd Annual Meeting of the Palaeontological Association at Valencia, Spain. The meeting will take place December 18th-20th. There will be no separate IGCP653 symposium, but several talks and posters are related to the onset of the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event. IGCP 653 will organize an informal business meeting during a dinner to which all participants are invited.
Please email Thomas Servais (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are attending the PalAss meeting in Valencia by December 1st.
This will allow us to include you for the IGCP 653 dinner. There is also support available for students and participants from developing countries who present IGCP 653 related results.
Please do present your papers (talks and posters) at the PalAss meeting with acknowledgements to our project with our logo (available here) on your presentation and/or a sentence such as “This paper is a contribution to the International Geoscience Programme (IGCP) Project 653 – The onset of the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event.”
