Lyell Meeting proposals call

atryThe Lyell meeting, an annual flagship event for UK palaeontology, is open to suggestions.

It is co-ordinated by the Joint Committee for Palaeontology (JCP), which consists of representatives from the Geological Society, Palaeontological Association, Palaeontographical Society and Micropalaeontological Society. The co-ordination of a Lyell Meeting is open to any member of the four constituent societies.

The date for the 2016 Lyell meeting is Wednesday 9 March 2016 and a call for proposals is now open. Those wishing to propose a topic and convene this meeting are invited to submit developed proposals to the JCP, ( by 28 February 2015 . Submitted proposals will be reviewed by the JCP with the successful proposal decided by mid- March 2015.

The JCP welcomes submissions that are ambitious in scope and trans-disciplinary, and which are therefore 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. Proposals should name a lead convener, and one or two co-conveners.
