Southampton 2015
63rd Symposium for Vertebrate Palaeontology and Comparative Anatomy and the 24th meeting of the Symposium of Palaeontological Preparation and Conservation with the Geological Curators' Group
29th August - 4th September 2015

The Symposium of Vertebrate Palaeontology and Comparative Anatomy (SVPCA) meeting (+ associated preparators/conservators meeting) will be held at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton starting Monday August 31st 2015 ­ and will run through Thursday the 3rd (talks).

The meeting will be preceeded by the 2015 Flugsaurier (about pterosaurs) meeting held the week before in Portsmouth (26th/27th/28th). Schedule I've agreed with Dave Martill is below.

While this is HUGE advance warning this is surely a great opportunity for all local VP-ers to get involved/present their work and help out (apart from Jessica, who is exhausted with conferences).

Please do start to spread the word and clear your diaries for these dates!
