Annual Meeting of the Paläontologische Gesellschaft

The annual meeting of the society is an important platform for our members to meet and exchange information. Members, guests and guest-scientist are presenting results of research, young scientists and students are meeting experienced members. 

The meeting is held once a year and takes place in different locations. Universities, museums and other research institution are the host of the annual meetings. In our business meeting, our members decide where the next conference will be held. 

Normally, our annual conferences take place in autumn. Following a very successful joint conference with our Chinese colleagues in Göttingen in 2013, there will be another joint conference in autumn of 2017 in China. In addition to this joint conference, we decided to have our annual conference in the spring this year, as an exception. It will take place from March 26-30, 2017, in Münster.
