2nd Palaeontological Virtual Congress

Abstract deadline is March 15th!

After a first successful edition, with more than 160 contributions and 170 assistants belonging to 29 different nationalities, a 2nd Palaeontological Virtual Congress (2nd PVC) is being organised, with the same purpose of spreading worldwide the most recent scientific advances in palaeontology in a fast, easy and economical way. This new edition will take place on May 2020, being exclusively developed in a virtual environment, and organised by a young group of researchers belonging to the Universitat de València, Museu Valencià d’Història Natural and Museo Paleontológico de Alpuente (Spain), the University of Bath and the University of Bristol (UK), and Universidad Nacional de La Plata (Argentina). Oral communications and posters about any palaeontological field will be presented through an online platform created ad hoc. The simplicity of this new format will allow for low-cost registration fees (5€) and saving travel and maintenance expenses for the delegates. Consequently, this initiative aims to give international projection to the paleontological research carried out by groups with limited economic resources and promoting the participation of palaeontologists from developing countries.
