ROMANIAN SOCIETY OF PALAEONTOLOGISTS
The 11th ROMANIAN SYMPOSIUM OF PALAEONTOLOGY
We are honoured to invite you cordially to Bucharest, one of the centres of the Romanian Palaeontology, to attend the Eleventh Romanian Symposium of Palaeontology to be held between the 25th and 30th of September, 2017.
In 2017 the Department of Geology of the University of Bucharest will host the Romanian Symposium of Palaeontology meeting for the fourth time, 20 years after the First Romanian Symposium of Palaeontology organized by the Department of Geology and Palaeontology of the University of Bucharest in 1997.
These biennial meetings of the SPR (Societatea Paleontologilor din Romania - The Romanian Society of Palaeontologists) are aimed to promote the collaboration between scientists working in the wider field of Palaeontology as well as in related research areas represented by Stratigraphy, Sedimentology, Palaeobiogeography, Palaeoecology, Basin Analysis, Geoheritage and Geoconservation. The SPR meetings represent excellent opportunities for scientists working in these fields to share their research experience and share results, to discuss different topics of interest, and to initiate collaborative projects. During the years, the biennial meetings of the SPR became International Meetings, with participants from all over Europe but also from other continents.
See you then in Bucharest!
For the organizing committee,
The 11th Romanian Symposium of Palaeontology will be held at the Department of Geology of the University of Bucharest, in 1 N. Bălcescu Ave, Bucharest, Romania.
The University of Bucharest was founded in 1864 by Ruling Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza and is one of the leading academic centers of Romania. The University of Bucharest is rich in history, and has been actively contributing to Romanian education, science and culture since its founding. Even from the beginnings of the University, Earth Sciences occupied an important place in the formation of the students, with Paleontology representing one domain of the Natural and Earth Sciences that continuously developed as an important direction of research and education.
