The University of Alberta Laboratory for Vertebrate Paleontology is celebrating the 50th anniversary of a landmark international paleontology conference, held at the university in 1963 and which kicked off the start of our formal paleontology program here, with a symposium on Friday, August 30.
You're invited to join us in Edmonton from August 29 to September 1. Our 50th anniversary celebrations will be held concurrently with the 2013 Canadian Paleontology Conference, and the inaugural meeting of the Canadian Society of Vertebrate Paleontology.
Abstracts for the CPC are due by August 1. You can register for both events, and find out more information, at our conference website: http://cpc2013.wordpress.com.
We hope that many of our palaeontology colleagues, and especially UALVP alumni, will be able to join us in Edmonton in August!
