European Conference on Echinoderms are rare opportunities to bring together scientists from different countries, disciplines and generations, in one meeting dedicated to both extant and extinct echinoderms. The 11th edition will take place in France. It will include a pre-conference excursion (Oct., 11-15) to the Villefranche-sur-Mer marine station (close to Nice, on the French riviera), 4 days of indoor sessions in Lyon (Oct. 16-17, 19-20), and one mid-conference excursion to Ardèche, including the visit of the Callovian (Middle Jurassic) La Voulte Lagerstätte.

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.

Event Date: Sunday, September 8, 2024 to Wednesday, September 11, 2024

In the summer of 1849, Professor André Hubert Dumont of Liège (Belgium) first used the phrase ‘système maestrichtien’, while doing geological mapping in the Belgium/Netherlands border area near Maastricht. In the three decades that followed a wealth of stratigraphical and palaeontological data were published. In fact, the same may be said about recent progress in these fields. New information on the type Maastrichtian, including a chemostratigraphical analysis, clearly shows that interest in this latest Cretaceous time slice is still very much alive and kicking.

Event Date: Thursday, September 12, 2024 to Sunday, September 15, 2024

Early in May 2004, some 25 scholars of mosasaurid reptiles assembled for the first edition of what was then referred to as the ‘Mosasaur Meeting’ at the Natural History Museum of Maastricht. An aptly chosen venue – after all, the first fossils of ‘Meuse lizards’ were unearthed here in the latter half of the eighteenth century. The 2004 meeting was the first in a series of triennial workshops, in Europe and North America, for which it was later decided to include also talks on non-mosasaurid marine amniotes of Mesozoic age.
