Lyell Meeting proposals 2014

The 2014 Lyell meeting will take place on Wednesday 12 March 2014. The call for proposals is now open.

LyellAnyone wishing to propose a topic and convene this meeting is invited to submit developed proposals to the Joint Committee for Palaeontology (JCP – E: [email protected]) by 31 May 2013.

JCP welcomes submissions that are ambitious in scope and trans-disciplinary, because these are more likely to attract a larger and potentially international audience. 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. Submitted proposals will be reviewed by JCP and decided by mid-June.

The Lyell meeting is an annual flagship event for UK palaeontology. The meeting is co-ordinated by JCP, which consists of representatives from the Geological Society, Palaeontological Association, Palaeontographical Society and The Micropalaeontological Society. Co-ordination of the Lyell Meeting is open to any member of the four constituent societies.
