24th 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).
