Annual Meeting Abstracts


In light of the COVID-19 crisis, there is a possibility that some annual meeting content will be shifted from in-person to virtual presentation. When submitting your abstract, please be sure to indicate whether or not you consent to delivering your presentation virtually to a restricted audience of registered meeting attendees by answering this question as presented on the online abstract submission form. The usual meeting restrictions on recording and photographic presentations must be strictly adhered to for virtual content. If the meeting moves to full virtual content, you will be given the opportunity to reconsider your decision.

  • All authors must name two alternate presenters for their abstract submission in the event they be unable to attend the meeting.  Provide both full name and email address for each alternate.

  • Symposium Session (invited submissions only)
  • Education & Outreach Poster Session
  • Preparators’ Session
Any abstract that is not selected for the Romer Prize session or the Graff International Paleontology award will be moved to regular submission status and will be considered alongside all other abstracts submitted.  If it is designated as a poster, it may be considered for the Colbert Prize.

All presenting authors who are Student Members of SVP will automatically be considered for the Colbert Prize if selected for a poster presentation.  Following assessment by the Colbert Prize Panel, Colbert Prize finalists will be notified by the Program Committee when abstract programming notifications are sent to all authors.  

Topic Category
In addition to selecting a general taxonomic group, there are three more categories to describe your abstract: a more specific taxonomic category, a topic category, and a stratigraphic category.  These options are primarily for use in the scheduling of presentations, so please consider this while making your choices.
