Frenchman Formation Terrestrial Ecosystem Conference 2009
We are now accepting abstracts (up to six pages with illustrations) for posters and oral presentations, dealing with all aspects related to the late Maastrichtian palaeontology of the Frenchman Formation. The deadline for abstract submissions is March 1st, 2008. Registration will be $150 after March 1, but early registrants will receive a reduced rate of $100 for students and $125 for non-students. Your registration fee includes the abstract volume, banquet attendance, lunches, social events, and other benefits.
On May 20th there will be an optional workshop incorporating Frenchman Formation specimens, and fieldtrip to local macro- and microvertebrate sites. Cost for both fieldtrip (including lunch) and workshop is $40.
Please note that the conference will be limited to one hundred participants, so register soon.
