Lyell meeting 2019

The Lyell Meeting 2019 is now open to proposals, writes Naomi Newbold.

Lyellresized.jpgThe Lyell meeting is an annual flagship event for UK palaeontology. It 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 The Micropalaeontological Society (TMS). Co-ordination of the Lyell Meeting is open to any member of the four constituent societies.

There is now a call for proposals for the 2019 meeting, which is due to take place in March that year.  Those wishing to propose a topic and convene this meeting are invited to submit developed proposals to [email protected] by Friday 2 February 2018.

The JCP welcomes submissions that are ambitious in scope and trans-disciplinary, which are more likely to attract a larger and potentially international audience. Proposed topics should appeal to a wide cross-section of the geological and palaeontological community. They should have a lead convener and one or two co-conveners. Submitted proposals will be reviewed by JCP, with the successful proposal decided by mid-March next year.
