Mark your calendar for NAPC 2019

July 13, 2017

The University of California-Riverside and the organizing committee are very pleased to announce that The 11th North American Paleontological Convention will be held  June 23 to June 27, 2019. We extend an enthusiastic invitation to SVP members to attend and participate in the meeting, and we ask your help in developing an outstanding series of sessions and other events.

NAPC is an international conference that meets every 4-5 years, bringing together all branches of paleontology (vertebrate, invertebrate, paleobotany, micropaleontology, paleo-related organic and inorganic geochemistry, paleoecology, paleoclimatology, and astrobiology) for a joint meeting typically hosted on a campus. The meeting attracts professional scientists, graduate and undergraduate students, serious amateur paleontologists, and interested members of the public. The purpose is to exchange research findings, define future directions, and be a forum for extended and relaxed interactions between professionals and early career scientists, most particularly graduate and undergraduate students. NAPC meetings are generally less formal than annual association meetings, and allow time for more extended and relaxed interactions.
