The Second International Palaeontological Congress
June 17-21, 2006
The Second International Palaeontological Congress will take place in June 2006 at Bejing, China. The session T4 is sponsored by IGCP 503: Ordovician World: temporal and spatial changes in physical and biotic environments (IGCP 503). This session will be convened by Li Jun and Thomas Servais.
Symposium "Paleogeography and Global Correlation of the Ordovician Events" (PGCOE)
August 1-15, 2006
The Symposium "Paleogeography and Global Correlation of the Ordovician Events" (PGCOE) is proposed to take place in Novosibirsk in August, 2006, with the collaboration of the Palaeontological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences of Moscow. The meeting, co-sponsored by IGCP 503, includes a field trip to the Kulyumbe River section.
IGCP 503 Annual Meeting
August 29 - September 1, 2006: the Meeting
This will be our main meeting in 2006 and it will be organised by Alan Owen. The main part of the conference will be from 30 August to 1 September with registration on Tuesday 29 August.

In addition, there will be a one-day pre-conference excursion including the Ordovician-Silurian boundary stratotype section at Dob's Linn on Tuesday 29 August and a 3-4 day post-conference excursion concentrating on the classical Ordovician and Silurian successions in southern Scotland at Girvan and in the Pentland Hills.
Gondwana 12 (International Conference), Mendoza, Argentina
November 1-5, 2005: Field Trip to Precordillera Terrane, Western Argentina
The Gondwana 12 Conference will be held in Mendoza, Argentina, 6-11 November 2005, as a joint venture between Argentina, Brazil and Chile. These are countries with a large community of geoscientists involved in different aspects of Gondwana research. They also have geological exposures of worldwide interest, to which it will be possible to organize an appropriate range of field excursions. Moreover, Argentina has the largest community of palaeontologists in South America, many of them working on the evolution of Gondwana flora and fauna. Thus this meeting should incorporate a strong biological and palaeontological theme in addition to the basic and applied geological disciplines more usually involved in Gondwana series conferences.
