Steer the flagship!

The Society is calling for proposals for the 2016 Lyell Meeting, writes Naomi Newbold.

The Lyell meeting is an annual flagship event for UK Palaeontology. The meeting is co-ordinated by the Joint Committee for Palaeontology (JCP), which consists of representatives from The Geological Society (GSL), Palaeontological Association (PalAss), Palaeontographical Society (PalSoc) and Micropalaeontological Society (TMS). The co-ordination of the Lyell Meeting is open to any member of the four constituent societies.

The 2016 Lyell meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 9 March 2016 and a call for proposals is now open.  Those wishing to propose a topic and convene this meeting are invited to submit developed proposals to the JCP (E: [email protected]) by 28 February 2015. Submitted proposals will be reviewed by the JCP, and the successful proposal decided by mid- March 2015.

JCP welcomes submissions that are ambitious in scope and trans-disciplinary, and therefore more likely to attract a larger and potential international audience. Proposed topics should appeal to a wide cross-section of the geological and palaeontological community.  Proposals should have a lead convener and one or two co-conveners.
