88th Annual Conference in Münster March 26-30, 2017


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. As the journey might be too expensive for some colleagues, 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, and is organized by the paleontologists of the Institute for Geology and Paleontology of the University of Münster and the LWL-Museum of Natural History.
