The 62nd Symposium of Vertebrate Palaeontology and Comparative Anatomy and the 23nd meeting of the Symposium of Palaeontological Preparation and Conservation with the Geological Curators' Group will be held in York in 2013




The Symposium of Vertebrate Palaeontology and Comparative Anatomy has been held in the UK, France or Ireland every year since 1953.

With no formal organisation, it is open to anyone with an interest in vertebrate palaeontology or comparative anatomy and has carried on from year to year because of the willingness of members of the community to volunteer to host meetings.

Details of previous years can be found here. This site was set up for the 2000 symposium in Portsmouth in 2000. I have collected material from previous years, going back as far as 1960. I'd like like to add more so that this site becomes an archive for previous years as well as giving information on future symposia.
