Registration is now open for this free online event.

The Symposium of Palaeontological Preparation and Conservation 2020 (#SPPC2020) will be held virtually this year during Earth Science Week and will consist of posters being presented online from October 11th to 17th, with a day dedicated to questions and answers on social media on Friday 16th October including discussions in a global Zoom meeting. ‘Conservation and preparation’ is used in its broadest sense here and includes all physical work undertaken on or with any geological material to prepare it for research, teaching or display. The work described in the posters may have been undertaken by professionals, volunteers and/or enthusiasts but should describe a technique you consider is new, different, unusual or interesting that you think other people would benefit from knowing about.

REGISTRATION IS FREE and closes on the 12th October. Registration is required to receive updates and the links for the Q&A videoconferencing sessions. For more information or to register, please go to:
