CPC 2014 will be at McGill University

Hello all!

In case anyone comes across this site in their search for information about the 2014 Canadian Paleo Conference, I’m posting this message that was mass emailed by Dr. Hans Larsson. Please contact Dr. Larsson for more information about this year’s conference. Hope to see you there!

Hi everyone,

Included in this mass emailing are everyone listed from the past five years in the CPC and last year’s CSVP list. Appologies for multiple postings. If you would like to be removed or know someone that should be included, please let me know.

I would like to announce that this year’s annual meeting of the Palaeontology Division of the Geological Association of Canada (http://publish.uwo.ca/~ctsujita/paleodivisiongac.htm) and the Canadian Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology (http://csvp.ca) will be another joint meeting. The meeting will take place in Montreal this Labour Day weekend. Last year’s joint meeting was a great success and the timing was appreciated by many – just after the summer field season but before the academic season. The joint meeting will be held at the Redpath Museum, McGill University (http://www.mcgill.ca/redpath), in the heart of Montreal.

 

Scheduling is planned as:

Thursday, 28 August – evening icebreaker

Friday, 29 August – contributed seminars

Saturday, 30 August – contributed seminars and closing banquet

Sunday, 31 August – field trip TBD

 

Abstract and registration deadlines are set for 1 August 2014. Efforts will be made to keep registration fees free for students andnominal for employed persons.

 

The Palaeo Divison will present another Pikaia Award (http://publish.uwo.ca/~ctsujita/paleodivisiongac_files/Page623.htm) this year. If you would like to nominate someone, please send your nominations to Michael Cuggy michael.cuggy@usask.ca by 1 June 2014.

 

regards,

Hans Larsson | Associate Professor | Canada Research Chair in Macroevolution | Redpath Museum | McGill University | hans.ce.larsson@mcgill.ca
