This Congress celebrating 200 years of modern palaeobotany, originally scheduled for September 2020, was postponed until May 2021; however, due to the ongoing pandemic the organizers made the decision to move the event to 2024. This date has also been chosen to reflect the decisions of the parent organizations (IFPS and IOP), and the fact that the online European Palaeobotany and Palynology Conference in Stockholm took place in 2022. These conferences are held biannually and usually alternate between European and world events.
