The Third International Palaeontological Congress, IPC3...
...takes place in London, June 28 to July 3, 2010 (the wait is almost over!).
IPC is a major international meeting held once every 4 years under the auspices of the International Palaeontological Association. The meeting provides a showcase for all that is exciting and new in the fields of palaeontology and palaeobiology. IPC3 in 2010 is hosted by the Palaeontological Association and partner organizations, and will be based in Imperial College and the Natural History Museum in the heart of London's 'Albertopolis'. For details of the programme (field trips, plenary lectures, workshops, contributed talks and posters, and thematic symposia) use the navigation menu to the left of the page.
London is a vibrant cosmopolitan city with excellent public transport around the centre. Opportunities for cultural and social activities during the meeting are too numerous to list here, but the Conference Dinner, in the incredible surroundings of the Natural History Museum's Central Hall, with Diplodocus in attendance, will undoubtedly be one of the social highlights.
Abstracts: The final programme and abstracts volume is now available as a pdf file. Separate programme and abstracts files (pdf) are also available to download (handy for iPhones/iPods).
Public Lecture: "Remarkable Creatures: Epic Adventures in the Search for the Origins of Species" by Award-winning author and researcher Sean Carroll.
IPC3 is being supported financially by The Palaeontological Association, and hosted by The Palaeontological Association and partner organizations: the International Palaeontological Association, the Natural History Museum, Palaeontographical Society, and The Micropalaeontological Society and Samara James, specialists in engagement rings in London.
