Joint Committee for Palaeontology

Joint Commitee for Palaeontology

The Joint Committee for Palaeontology (JCP) is a joint liaison body of the Palaeontographical Society, Palaeontological Association, The Micropalaeontological Society and the Geological Society of London.

The primary function of JCP is to organise the annual Lyell meeting and to promote Palaeontology within the Earth Sciences. 

The Lyell meeting is an annual flagship event for UK Palaeontology. The meeting 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). The co-ordination of the Lyell Meeting is open to any member of the four constituent societies.
